  • It's a small church up what appears to be a road you can't access but ignore the sign and walk up. The glass windows are the amazing feature being etched glass such that it's a place you ought to retu...  more »

  • Wow! The windows are stunning!! Beautiful. A must to go and see 🙂
  • Stunning stain glass by Sir Laurence Whistler in this church which was bombed in 1940. Note Lawrence’s grave is some way from the church in a separate graveyard.
  • The first thing that strikes you as you enter this church is how bright it seems in contrast to so many C of E churches. The second thing that you notice is the absence of stained glass, which tends to account for the brightness. The history of the windows is fascinating, and there is a booklet available for purchase which details the same, and contains many good illustrations. The glass is difficult to photograph, though almost everybody tries. A dull day is better than bright sunshine, and a viewpoint that has a dark exterior background (like trees) can improve the contrast. There are lots of other good details, like the painted font, the carved and painted coats-of-arms adorning the vaults in the apse and the nave, and the lovely tiled floor. The cemetery, only a couple of hundred metres away, is the resting place of T. E. Lawrence, and Clouds Hill, Lawrence's home, is only a few kilometres to the north. They are both worth a visit.
  • A beatiful Anglican Church packed with details. The authentic graveyard, the etched windows, and the well maintained interiour make this a great little church to visit when you're in the area. Fits in perfectly if you're doing the Lawrence of Arabia Trail !
  • We went to this church to see the etched windows. We heard they were beautiful. We were not disapointed. I was lucky to be able to photograph them with my Samsung phone.
