Oldbury-on-the-Hill, St Arild's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Arild's sancity seems to rely on the story that she resisted the unwelcome advances of Muncius, who cut off her head. She was buried beside her holy well, but later her bones were transfered to Gloucester Cathedral. Miracles were later reported at her tomb.
The church is composed of a nave, chancel, north porch, and west tower, all of coursed rubble. The nave windows are late 14th or early 15th century work, while the two-stage west tower is late 15th century and the simple porch was added a century later.
St Arild's is no longer in regular use and is cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust.
