The Church was built in the 12th Century although parts of the surviving Chancel date back to a much earlier West Saxon chapel. The surviving Chancel resisted demolition and was used as a mortuary chapel for a time. It then fell into disrepair until renovated in 1963.The building features include a medieval oak door which has been carbon dated to 1354, some 16th Century murals and the Royal Coat of Arms of 1726. This was originally served by the 'head-minister' at King Sombourne, as were other chapels in the 'hundred'. Surrounding the building is the church yard which is the only graveyard in the village.

If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication

Logging Etiquette: Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches. As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required. Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste" logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache. Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
