The mid-morning light streams in illuminating the gentle flecks of dust and remarkable wall paintings of St John the Baptist church Inglesham. We can see 
St Christopher as he was portrayed in the 1200’s and make out some of The Ten Commandments above the nave arch.


Box Pews, overseen by an equally grand pulpit, all faded and polished by time. Worship from wonderful Book of Common Prayer (1662) was given and received by all who sat in this wonderful church.


Sit, think, absorb the walls, roof and furniture of this special place now cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust and loved by many, judging from the visitor’s book by the door.


Miss not the Saxon stone Madonna and Child in the south wall.


All within striking distance of Lechlade and Faringdon.


Peaceful interior 

An excellent more measured story of this church by Churches Conservation Trust is here.

by John Piper who visited Inglesham in 1948
