St Andrew’s Church has served the rural community of our village since the early 12th century. It contains a number of features which are reminders of our rich heritage; these include a Norman doorway, a Royal Coat of Arms and related Garter Boards, a 16th century carved pew and an Ogee Arch among others. In 2001, while redecorating the church, several 12th and 14th century wall paintings were discovered and a grant from English Heritage made it possible to uncover a section of these unique paintings. This was widely publicised in the press at the time and has, and continues to bring, many visitors to our church. We have an open church so access to visitors is not restricted. We frequently welcome groups from Universities and Local History Societies and have sponsored several Heritage lectures.
