Church of St Mary the Virgin

St Mary’s the Virgin Church, listed Grade B, dates from about 1230, but all that remains of the original structure is the massive well built tower added to in the 15th Century. A major reconstruction was carried out on 1879 when the vestry and organ chamber were added.

The gargoyles on the South West corner of the tower are often mentioned in books on country churches in Wiltshire and are a popular visitor attraction.

The organ attributed to the famous organ maker Willis, was installed during the reconstruction and has now been completely restored and reinstated.
