St Peter, Windrush, Gloucestershire - 21st June 2005

The village is named after the nearby river and the church is Norman in origin.  Like nearby St Peter, Little Barrington, Windrush was originally a dependent chapel on the church at Great Barrington which was dedicated by Alfred, Bishop of Worcester, in 1159.

 The south door is surrounded by rather alarming beak heads and other bird-like carvings, perhaps to warn the people of the dangers of delaying entering the church!
