All Saints

This unusual and rather lovely church gets its character from an eclectic mix of work from the 12th, 15th and 20th centuries.

North Cerney, Gloucestershire

Opening times

Sorry, there are no regular opening times for this church.


North Cerney

Transepts and a new roof were added to the original Norman church in the 1470s, creating a cruciform shape that makes an oddly charming composition with the saddleback tower at the west end.

The interior, full of colour and beautiful craftsmanship, owes much to a 20th-century benefactor. William Iveson Croome, a knowledgeable local churchman and historian who lived in North Cerney, worked with the architect FC Eden to restore and refurnish the church. Their thoughtfully executed work includes the rood loft, the gilded reredos, the contemporary glass, and the purchase of period furnishings. The figures of saints in the side panels of the reredos are a reference to the church's dedication.

This enchanting little church, stepped down the slope of a Cotswold hillside, is just as ancient as it looks and feels.

St John the Baptist

Dubbed the Cathedral of the Cotswolds, Cirencester's brilliant 'wool' church is the largest and, many would say, the finest of them all.
