The Church of 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 so it was open.  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.

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

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

We have made a few more visits since and concentrated on taking photographs of the gravestones as the church was locked.  We think we have now photographed all the stones that are still accessible and readable.
