St. Mary the Virgin, Calstone Wellington, Wiltshire, England



We first visited St. Mary the Virgin in Calstone Wellington in April 2002.  Our overiding memory was of peace and tranquility.  It was a beautiful spring day and the birds were singing, the hedgerows were bursting into life after winter and in the fields was another sign of spring - tiny lambs.  The church was most welcoming and full of character, with history going back to the 1300s; this building dating from the mid 1400s.

At the time of our first visit we had a stills camera and a video camera that we could capture a photograph.  At that time we only took a few photographs with the stills camera and the rest, such as memorials and gravestones, were taken with the video camera as the cost of photographing everything with film was prohibitive.  The video-photographs (indicated with a 'D' before the photograph number) are very poor quality, but at that time we preferred to have a poor quality photograph of something than no photograph at all.  Now we have a digital camera and are trying to replace all our original video-photographs and have made further visits to Calstone but we have not been able to go inside the church.

The church is a Grade II listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  British Listed Buildings  website.

More information about Calstone Wellington can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
