St Nicholas Church, Lower Oddington

4.9
An ancient relic of a bygone era, St Nicholas Church stands as a temple secluded from the touches of both time and civilization. Pay a visit to this village parish church, numbered among one of England's thousand best churches, according to Simon Jenkins. Walk among the tombstones in the churchyard surrounded by woods, which add to the atmosphere and hint at the site's history. See the largest Last Judgment painting in Britain, named "Doom," dating from around 1340, which was whitewashed during the Reformation and later restored. Next to the painting is a mural dated to about 1520 representing a morality play called "Magnificence;" it's also a sight that attracts visitors.

  • Ancient secluded church dating back to the C12. The church is is a beautiful village. We went to visit my ancestors who are buried in the church and commemorated there. I would recommend visiting the nearby pub called The Fox, where the staff were so welcoming, and the Sunday lunch was so delicious.
