Amazing decorated apse, in memory of a former rector (Canon Olivier). The whole building of one period, built at the behest of a former Countess of Pembroke, all in the Italianate style.

The bell tower is an astonishing sight in a Wiltshire town. Wonderful mosaics and a very warm welcome from the church members.

I never thought I could say a church took my breath away, but this certainly did. The exterior is amazing, for a moment I forgot I was in England. I can understand why its called the 'Italianate' church. Beautiful and well worth a visit.

This is an amazing find in Wilton....the exterior architecture is incredible, one could be in Sienna or Rome. The interior is not so stunning save for the altar area and the dome above the altar, the painting of which replicates what may be seen in Europe. A friendly welcome from a local guide and a sense of peace and history.

We received a warm welcome from a guide who was most informative. We were struck by its enormous size, having only seen it previously on a postcard.

Great little church, and the curate put the lights on for me to see the absolutely fantastic mosaics.

Astonishing Victorian Italianate church on a grand scale. Has to be seen to be believed. Amazing details, vast building with the finest carving and furnishings.

We came upon this church by chance.The interior reminded us more of a Greek Orthodox church with its wonderful mosaics and painted interior and ceilings. Not something you' d usually see in a church in England.

We stayed outside of Salisbury for 10 days during the summer of 2011 and drove by this church many times. The church is right on the A30 in Wilton which is just a few minutes drive west of Salisbury. Finally I decided that I had to stop and have a look at this unusual building. The church is very unusual... More
