The Church Today
Church History

HISTORY

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.

Friends of St Lawrence Church

A charitable Trust - The Friends of St Lawrence Church - was set up to ensure that funds are available to maintain this important village asset. New members are always welcome.
