This simple Norman church in Gloucestershire, remote from the village it once served, has the oldest timber roof of any building in England.
Members of CSSC benefit from a great range of discounted and free days out and shopping vouchers.
Its greatest glory, however, comes from having some of the best preserved medieval wall paintings in Britain. Those in the chancel are particularly rare, dating from the early 12th century, and are the most complete set of Romanesque frescos in northern Europe. The paintings are a vivid reminder of a time when church interiors were covered in such paintings. They tell stories from the Bible, depict the lives of saints, and show terrifying visions of demons and eternal damnation.
Open 10am-6pm, daily, from March until October. Winter viewing available by appointment only
