This typical building, one of the "wool churches" of the Cotswolds, is both beautiful and fascinating. The high tower dates back to 1400-1420 and is supported by solid flying buttresses. Standing above the town, it is visible from miles around. The unusual three-storey porch overlooking the marketplace previously served as the town hall. The church contains many fine details.
