All Saints Church, Lydiard Millicent, Wiltshire, England



The church in Lydiard Millicent is called All Saints.  It is a particularly picturesque building and setting - just what we picture when we think of a typical English village church.  We have made a few visits, starting in back in 2000, and each time we are impressed by the welcome we are given and the dediction those members we have spoken with have for their church.  Our photographs are, of course, about the building not the people but we feel the current congregation have a good understanding of it's importance to our heritage.  The church has it's own website at  allsaints-online.org.uk.

Our visit in 2014 was during an heritage open weekend where the church was decorated with beautiful flower displays - each one remembering one of it's men who died in the First World War (2014 being the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the war).  We visitors were treated to some pretty rousing church organ playing too!  Across the road the village hall was also open and there were plenty of displays about the village, its occupants and history.  Well done Lydiard Millicent for all the work people had gone to in their research and the outcome of their labours.

The church of All Saints is a Grade II* listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  Historic England  website.

More information about Lydiard Millicent can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  and  Lydiard Millicent  village website.
