HERITAGE RATING: Heritage Rating  ?

Edworth, St George's Church

An early 13th century church with a wealth of excellent carving, St George's belonged at one time to St Neot's Priory. The church wwas begun about 1200, and the chancel and side aisles were added about a century later.

Perhaps the most unusual feature of St George's church is the freestanding piscina. I can't immediately bring to mind any other parish church in the area with a freestanding piscina. There are small areas of 14th century wall paintings stil to be seen, and some medieval stained glass. One other interesting feature are the carved wooden choir stalls, dating to the 15th century.

Taken as a whole, St George's is a pretty country church, with interesting Decorated and Perpendicular features worth seeing. The church is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust, and is no longer in use for regular worship.
