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!
Here is a view looking east from the nave into the chancel.
This view, taken from the chancel, shows the simplicity of this country church.
The pipe organ is in a vestry to the south of the chancel.
Here is the font.
Here is a final view of the south side of this lovely Cotswold church.
