Interesting walk through churchyard and along river bank. Church has a fine steeple and tower and oversees the village. Tombstones date back centuries while the church is a fine example of perpendicular architecture.

Very large church with wonderful stained glass windows on large ground in a beautiful village. Lots of history and great for a visit. There is a large cafe next to the church which has a great selection of food. Coffee was great.

So visit this seriously old, exquisite church, if you are in Burford or nearby. Its stunning and atmospheric.

Being a fan of looking around old churches, I really enjoyed seeing this place. It is really old, dates back to Norman times, the extentions to the building are very haphazard in places, making it a wonderful, old English church. If you are interested in...More

A Grade I listed building built with wool profits of the Middle Ages. A memorial plaque to Henry VIII's barber-surgeon has, for some reason, sculpted South American Indians, one of the earliest depictions of these. A fascinating and expensive carved plaque details the long life...More
