St. Giles, Stanton St. Quintin, Wiltshire, England



The parish church of St. Giles at Stanton St. Quintin lies on the main road through the village.  It's east wall is particularly grand and is much more impressive than our photographs show.

There are various stone heads found around the outside of the building and there is a curious pagan fertility symbol - a Sheela-na-gig - which is on the north tower and difficult to spot unless you know where to look.

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

More information about Stanton St. Quintin can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
