The Church of Saint Andrew, Naunton, Gloucestershire
Naunton is the quintessential Cotswold Village, not large, just a cluster of cottages, Manor House and a Medieval Dove Cote even a small river, The Windrush flowing through.
At its centre is the village Church of Saint Andrew and like the rest of the villages in the Cotswolds it is built of that famous glowing Cotswold Gold Stone.
Dating back to the 1200’s the church has enjoyed renovations at various times since then, notably in the 1500’s and then the 1800’s
One fairly unique feature of Saint Andrews is outside on the tower where visitors come to admire the two medieval ‘sundials’…
If you do visit Naunton and this lovely village church….pleased don’t forget to close the Lych Gate behind you…..
