Chedworth, St Andrew's Church
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Other features of historical note include the 15th century pulpit, which was carved from a single block of stone, 14th century piscina, and a copy of a 'Breeches Bible' in a glass case in the north aisle.
This latter is an interesting curiosity. It was a Protestant translation of the Bible, made in about 1557. It acquired its unusual name because of its translation of Genesis 3:7; "Then the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked, and they sewed fig tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches." This section of the text has been well signed so that visitors can read it for themselves.
