St Peters Church, Langley Burrell

 My job takes me all over the country and on May 5th 2018 I was at the large Wavin site at Chippenham, Wiltshire. On my way to Wavin driving down the B4069 from the M4 motorway I passed a sign for St Peters Church and knowing that I was overnighting nearby I thought it might pass a bit of time on later in the evening to go and have a look around. I'd not expected to go off on an explore so was without any camera gear other than the one in my mobile phone.

The church occupies a secluded spot close to the road and without the sign i'm not sure I would have ever known it was there. On the day I visited the interior was closed but the grounds were accessible and I spent a bit of time having a wander around taking pictures.

There has been a church on the site since Saxon times, approx the 9th Century with some of the lower structures of the modern church around the porch and nave being Saxon built. The church has been renovated and extended many times over the centuries, with only the 16th century leaving the church unchanged before more work took place later. Since 1890 the church has undergone restoration to the chancel, nave and aisle, repairs to the tower in 1890 and 1926, electric was installed in the 1920's and heating in the 1960's. The church is an Anglican place of worship and is in the diocese of Bristol.

There are 11 pictures to see below and on Clickasnap, they were taken on March 5th 2018 using an LG mobile phone. The pictures on Clickasnap are full resolution and un-watermarked versions of the ones here.

Thanks for looking and please take a moment to share, all the pictures remain the copyright of Colin Green.
