Bradford-on-Avon Saxon Church Description

This is one of the most complete Saxon buildings still in existence and is thought to have originated in the early 11th century. In 1715 it was used as an 'ossuary' - a skull and bone house, and then in the 1800's as a free school for boys. Two stone carved angels were discovered in 1856 while repair work was be carried out, which led to the rediscovery of the small church by Canon Jones, the vicar of Bradford on Avon, who then brought about its restoration.

The church is still used today by the congregation of Holy Trinity and other Christian groups and is only a short walk from the centre of Bradford-on-Avon, signposted from near the bridge.
