St Benedict

Light filled simplicity.

About this church

A lovely Norman church, with a stunning Decorated east window and a beautifully simple interior.

Look out for the seventeenth-century pulpit and the unusual Norman carving above the south doorway. There are also old pews with carved ends in various directions facing the seventeenth-century pulpit, a screen adapted as a family pew, Royal Arms of Charles I and lovely old tiled floors.

The wooden fenced churchyard is filled with wildflowers in spring.
