St Lawrence Church has 13th century origins.  It was once surrounded by a medieval village and at least part of the chancel was standing when a cathedral on nearby Old Sarum was in use. Listed by English Heritage in 1972, St Lawrence Church has Grade 1 status.  

View the Church History page, or click 'Church' in the menu to find information about the church bells; the unusual one-handed clock; architectural features; other illustrated topics and Views from the tower.

A Registered Charity - The Friends of St Lawrence church - fundraises to help to maintain the church building.
