Brief Description

This beautiful village church located near Henley on Thames was originally Norman and built of flint and brick. Despite being enlarged in the C19, the interior has medieval details, Norman font and stone effigy and brasses.

  • Main Description

    The church was enlarged and restored by Benjamin Ferrey in the C19, extending the nave and adding the north tower and aisle.

    The chancel and south nave walls are medieval with a blocked C12 doorway and C14 window openings with Victorian tracery. Victorian chancel arch with C14 tomb recess and Norman piscina in the chancel.

    The Norman font has scallop decoration and cable moulding. There are two C15 stained glass shields and a head in the north nave window.

    There is a C14 stone effigy of a knight and brasses to the Foster family C15 and the Rector, Sir Walter Elmes, C16.
