Reasons for trip

Windrush is a small ex quarrying village built around the village green. The church is set above the street and surrounded by a wall with the war memorial listing names of the dead from the 1914-18 war.

The church dates from the 12thC and has a small battlemented tower at the west end and a variety of roof lines. It has a lovely Norman south door with two rows of round arches decorated with carved bird beaks. Some seem to have two heads. The door still has its large old iron hinges and old lock. On the outside of the door jam are two mass sundials.

Steps lead down into the church. An arcade of round pillars and pointed arches separate the very narrow south aisle from the nave. At the back of the church is an octagonal font with carved arches and flowers round the bowl. On the back wall are boards with the Ten Commandments.

Walls are plaster and there is a king post wooden roof.

The wooden pulpit is Jacobean. The pointed chancel arch has small round pillars carved with a spiral pattern and carved capitals. It holds a rood screen.. The chancel has bench stalls and a sedilia and piscina on the south wall. The altar has a scarlet curtain round three sides. The chancel floor is covered with encaustic tiles.

This is a typical small village church. It’s main attraction is the carving round the south door. It is worth stopping to look if passing but not worth making a special trip.

The church is open all day and there is on street parking outside.
