Fovant is a small village to the west of Salisbury. One of the things that stikes you when you visit St. George's parish church is the military connection. There was a training camp and military hospital near Fovant and there are many soldiers buried in the churchyard - some of whom survived the war but died of the 'flu epidemic as they were waiting to return home.
The church and graves are well cared for; this is a welcoming village that has not forgotten the tradegy of war.
Inside the church a history leaflet is available, written by Revd. John Eade. Any dates/information we give in these pages concerning the church comes from this leaflet. The leaflet (quite rightly!) starts by reminding us that this is a church - a place of worship: "Welcome to Fovant Church. It's most important feature is not it's architecture, fascinating though that is, but simply that it stands here as a witness to over a thousand years of Christian worship and prayer in this place. Before you leave we ask you to join in all those prayers and pray for those you love and for yourself and for us."
