Cemeteries

This Church has (or 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 14th century, and we understand it is still open.

St Paul's Church is a Grade II Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details.

It now belongs to the United Benefice known as "The Greenway Parishes", comprising the parishes of Badgeworth, Shurdington, and Witcombe with Bentham.

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.
