This is not your normal English village parish church. It was built in 1845 by a Victorian politician and close friend of Florence Nightingale (they both campaigned for better health and medical conditions in the Britsih Army). Unusually it was built in an Italian style which dates back to Roman times. Outside the Roman facade and the separate campanile take... More

Stunning construction skills used throughout the building - you have to just marvel at the detail in the stonework and woodwork of such a cavernous building.

Very unusual church for this part of the world, it looks like an Italian village church. Well worth looking at if you are nearby but not worth a big detour.

An amazing church by any standards. As you walk or drive past you do a double take - thinking you've been dropped into the Florentine countryside! Pop inside and you see a positive WEALTH of treasures filched (sorry, PURCHASED) from Italian sources during the Grand Tour era. If you're lucky one of the very helpful volunteers there are a positive... More

Had a wonderful afternoon looking round church with friends and hubby. Really impressed with interior and exterior. Stained glass is exceptional. Went round graveyard too which was fascinating with several older graves and even a few with wooden crosses!!

it is actually called Wilton Parish Church and the postcode is SP2 0DL. Anyone who is remotely interested in architecture should visit this church which has its roots in the Italian and Russian benefactors which can be very clearly seen from the remarkable money-no-object spending that has clearly gone on. the church was built in the Italian Romanesque style.

This church is a short distance out of the village- only 5 mins or so, but is well worth the walk. I can't imagine what mind gave birth to this design in Wiltshire but it has been well done. Take time to wander around the architecture and once i side, don't miss pressing the button on the wall that illuminates... More

I came across this Church quite by accident whilst travelling to Salisbury. What a gem! The outside of the Church was the attraction - very Italian and intriging - had to go inside and see if it was as beautiful on the inside. There was an elderly lady working in the church and she took time to show me around... More
