St Michael’s Church – Little Bedwyn
Set in the charming village of Little Bedwyn, on the edge of the Kennet & Avon Canal, you will find St Michael’s Church.
St Michael’s church was originally a chapel-of-ease for Great Bedwyn, and served the community which had moved down into the valley from the iron-age fort at Chisbury (which has its own near-ruined chapel, St Martin’s).
The small community straddles the railway and canal. Of particular interest in the church are the differently shaped arches on either side of the nave, and the collection of hand-stitched kneelers.
The rear of the church, which also doubles as the village hall, has a map of the parish made for the millennium, with paintings of every building and all the wildlife found in the parish
