About the museum

This delightful little fourteenth-century church lies down a pretty wooded lane near the river Biss, on one of the many walking paths to the Westbury White Horse. From the west, the church is approached through a railway arch that opens out onto a simple churchyard, revealing an unusual church - squat yet pretty, with a tiny stone spire like an inverted ice cream cone.

Inside, little has changed since the eighteenth century; the church interior is crowded with plain, bleached box pews (some built on the original Medieval benches), a three-decker pulpit, family pews and two small galleries. The gallery north of the chancel was once used as a schoolroom and contains a fireplace.

Visitors are welcome to the church, and are able to collect the key to the church door from one of the local residents: follow signs on the church door for directions to the key-holder.
