The church tower looms high over the middle of town and the church and graveyard are easy to visit. The rectors since the 13th century are named, and the architectural changes are noted in a free handout.

A really beautiful and large church, very well preserved, worth paying a visit. Close attention to the stained glass windows!

The church has an interesting history and we were warmly welcomed by a church steward. The free leaflet handed to us had enough information on it to show which part of the church to look at.

A must visit, the whole of Cirencester is a must to visit. It is beautiful. So quaint and the parks are a lovely place to walk around. We will definitely be coming back to spend longer in this area.

What a lovely little church! We visited on one of the rare occasions when the tower is open to climb. Hubby went up and said it was fantastic at the top. I meandered on terra firma around the church. I especially liked the cup that belonged to Anne Boleyn!
