Chock full of history! Take time to have a look around the church and the site which dates back to Saxon times.

The no-doubt essential harling applied to the exterior make for an unappealing facade. No doubt that the Wordsworth family graves attract visitors; but how they need a tidy!

The church is not the most beautiful I have seen but surroundings and the Wordsworth graves and memorial are worth seeing. The interior is interesting and a guide book at £1 is brief but illuminating on the church's history.

This is a fine example of an Englishh village church. You must visit - near to the Daffodil Garden and the Gingerbread shop.

I was impressed to see the restored tower at St. Oswald's Church, which is Grade II listed at Historic England. Substantial restoration involving re-rendering and roof repairs has been done and the results look superb.
