East Shefford, Berkshire

Listed under Churches & Abbeys in South East England, United Kingdom.

Pin It

A tiny building in horse racing countryside with hardly any buildings around it and very humble in its brick, rubble, flint, and stone ad hoc construction. Inside however there is a wonderful atmosphere of past ages: ancient floor tiles, remains of wall paintings, some fine and pretentious wall memorials and a surprisingly grand tomb chest with some sadly headless but delicate angels carved on it. In the spring when surrounded by daffodils it is a delightful sight. 5 miles south east of Lambourn. Cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust
