Cemeteries

This Church had a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in the 12th century, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

St Nicholas of Myra's Church is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. It is of course also a Grade II Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details.

In common with several of the churches in this area of the Cotswolds, it is set in parkland. Ozleworth Park house is also Grade II Listed.

Today, the parish belongs to the United Benefice of Wotton-under-Edge with Ozleworth, North Nibley and Alderley with Tresham, so the church's former congregation may have joined one of the Benefice's other churches.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 2] St Nicholas of Myra's is in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust and OPEN. It is an absurd little building with a hexagonal late Norman central tower, or rather 5-eighths of an octagon with a larger east face.[1]

[Image 4] It is odd that in such small buildings how much expense was lavished on creating ornamentation which is not present in larger structures - as in this Early English west tower arch with its trellis-like chevron-like ornamentation.[1]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
