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 1144, and we understand it is still open.

A comprehensive account of the Church's history is available in the Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 5: Bledisloe Hundred, St Briavels Hundred, The Forest of Dean (1996), pp.272-284 (Staunton).

There is a Tithe Barn behind (to the north) of the Church, but it is not mentioned specifically in the history.

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 1] Late 12th century church gathered around a central tower. The exterior is unattractive, thanks to the rendered walls, and the interior too lacks appeal. My favourite feature was the East Window glass in the chancel.[1]

[Image 2] North and south arcades, the west three bays on the north blocked, and the remainder screened off by curtains and perspex partitions to make a chapel in the remaining part of the aisle. Bizarre arrangement of stone pulpit hanging from the tower stairs (NW crossing pier). Besides its main organ, this church also has a harmonium.[1]

[Image 3] Besides its main organ, this church has a harmonium. Not unusual maybe but this harmonium has a little set of organ pipes![1]

[Image 4] My favourite feature was the East Window glass in the Chancel, which Brooks feels is likely to be the work of Wailes - lots of deep blue and a depiction of Golgotha and the three crucified men, the city behind, and a busy crowd scene of mainly Roman soldiers.[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.
