The Church of St. Peter & St. Paul, Broadwell, Oxfordshire
We visited Broadwell for just a short time in January 2012 but there is so much history in this church we really needed to be there much longer. When we got home we saw the photographs are not very good - a new 'temporary' camera had been used and the photographs were ok when the lighting was good, but are awful in low light. When we read the history guide we realised there is so much we missed photographing. The combination of these two mean we really must return and finish taking photographs (and use our new camera to take them), but as always, finding the time is difficult in our busy lives.
We received a very warm welcome indeed from a church member who enthusiastically showed us around and told us about lots of things we otherwise would not have known. She also kindly suggested we could photograph the history guide to put on our website to share with our visitors. The guide was not available in printed form but instead pages were framed and hung around the church in relevant places; unfortunately our photographs were not good and they all had the camera reflected in the glass along with windows and other objects in the church. So we have transcribed it instead and are very grateful to be allowed to share the information which was so carefully researched and written. It can also be viewed/downloaded at:
The church of St. Peter and St. Paul is a Grade I listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the Historic England website.
