St. Andrew, Nunton, Wiltshire



We visited Nunton on a bright but somewhat windy spring day.  This church building is in a delightful setting so peaceful and beautiful despite the trees still having their bare winter branches.

Another thing to remember about our visit here was the animals in adjoining fields to the graveyard.  The horses were so friendly and it was obvious they are used to having a fuss made of them by visitors to the church.

We were not able to stay long enough to photograph all the gravestones in the graveyard.  We just photographed a few which were either in poor condition or have been laid down next to a wall, and therefore we weren't sure what would happen to them, and we noticed a war grave and we always photograph these even if we don't have time to photograph any others.  We do hope to return at some point to photograph the gravestones.

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

There is lots of information about Nunton at the Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks website.  Their introduction does say the pages are still being worked upon, but even so, it is still worth a visit if you have an interest in Nunton.  See the website at:  Nunton & Bodenham OPC.  This super project is looking for volunteers and is hoping to eventually cover all parishes, so do check back from time to time if your particular area of interest is not yet covered.
