Pipe Aston, St Giles Church
Pipe Aston, St Giles Church
A small jewel of a church, St Giles was founed in the Norman period and partly rebuilt in the 13th century. It consists of a small nave, chancel, and large south porch. There is no tower; just a small bellcote.
Within the nave is a large series of Norman wall paintings. Look up and you will see the timber-framed roof, which dates to the late 14th century. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the church is the beautifully carved north doorway, which features an intricate tympanum.
