Stratford Tony Church
Stratford Tony Church
The church of St Mary and St Lawrence at Stratford Tony is a quiet country church located in a secluded - one might even say scarcely accessible - location near the River Ebble.
The church is a pleasing mix of flint, stone, and brick, with the walls of the nave built in alternating bands of dark and light. The building is composed of a nave, small chancel, and squat two-tier west tower. The nave may be 13th century, with a font of similar age, while the chancel is 14th century. The interior furnishings are simple, with two rows of box pews and whitewashed walls and roof, illuminated by a large east window with Victorian stained glass by Kempe. The church is no longer in regular use and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
