Fairford Photos

I make no apologies for the fact that most of these photos illustrate St Mary's church in Fairford; it is truly a wonderful piece of architecture, and well worth a visit.

Fairford architecture
One of the older sections of Fairford, just at the bottom of High Street.

Fairford staineds glass window
One of the marvellous medieval stained glass windows at St Mary's, Fairford. Even if you're not generally a fan of medieval architecture, you'll enjoy wandering about this wonderful "wool church".

Fairford, church woodwork
It is easy to be so awed by the stained glass at Fairford that you overlook the rest of the church. That would be a mistake, as this shot of the quite lovely woodwork leading from the north aisle to the chancel shows.
Tiddles, Fairford churchyard
Tiddles the cat, located just outside the south porch entry to St Mary's church.
