1895 interior of church (1).jpg

St Lawrence Church has 13th century origins. 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.  

The village website has several pages about the structure and history of
St Lawrence Church. A suggestion - look at the Church History page, then use the main Menu labelled 'Church' to guide you through other pages including the church bells, the unusual one-handed clock, a photo album of architectural features, and other illustrated topics including Views from the church tower.

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