Open. This is another famous church, attractive because of its aisled tower as at Blackmore and Mundon, and a very big church too, sprawling in a wide churchyard with just a farmhouse for company. You have to go down a track to get to it. Inside is a delight, full of light. The main feature is probably the extensive range of memorials, but a great curiosity is that the arcade is carried on rustic wooden cruck beams above the capitals of elegant fluted 13th century pillars. I liked this best of all today.

Simon Knott, August 2013
