St Augustine's is well known for its remarkable detached bell tower, its size and shape unlike any other in Britain.
The lovely rural setting helps, as does the church's friendly jumble of red tiled roofs, buttresses, mixed building materials in the walls, and rustic broach spire that crowns the tower.
The core of the church dates from the 12th century, with additions in the 13th and 14th centuries.
Inside is an excellent collection of post Reformation fittings, including 17th century commandment boards behind the altar, a gallery and 18th century box pews.
The pews and gallery are painted pink, a legacy from the film Dr Syn, filmed here in the 1960s and starring Patrick McGoohan.
