The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Grittleton, Wiltshire, England



We visited Grittleton in August 2000.  At that time we did not have a digital camera and most of these photograph were taken using a video camera and capturing a shot from it - unfortunately they are very poor quality but at that time we only had this way of taking lots of photographs as the cost of using the stills camera (developing & printing) was too prohibitive.  Not only are these photographs not very good, but since that time we have developed a pattern of taking our photographs and these are missing much of the detail that we take now.

We probably have not looked at these pages since we produced them in 2000 and now - in August 2016 - we can see just how lacking these photographs are.  Now it has been brought to our attention we will make sure we re-visit Grittleton to take some better photographs.  The church has such a wealth of history and architecture and we seem to have missed most of it!  The village itself also abounds with history so should weather allow we will take a walk around it.  Now we have a plan, it's just finding the time to go.

The church of St. Mary the Virgin is a Grade II* listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  Historic England  website.  According to John Jackson in the book Wiltshire Collections, the church used to be called All Saints.

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