St. Andrew, Blunsdon St. Andrew, Wiltshire, England



Our first visit to Blunsdon St. Andrew was on an unusually bright day at the end of November 2000.  We were expecting to take photographs of the outside, but were lucky to have timed our visit just before a Christening was to take place.  Although the minister was somewhat busy, we were nevertheless welcomed inside to take photographs.   Alas, we only had 5 minutes before the Christening party arrived.  Although there is more to photograph inside the church, we hope these photographs will at least give an idea of what the inside looks like today.

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

More information about Blunsdon St. Andrew can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.

We have made a couple more visits since and concentrated on taking photographs of the gravestones.  We think we have now photographed all the stones that are still accessible and readable.  Please note - some of the inscriptions are very eroded and difficult to read; if you download the full size image you will be able to zoom in to see the words more easily.  If you notice a mistake or can add to our information, please let us know.  Thank you.
