Westbury on Severn church Photos
A lovely historic church located directly beside Westbury Court
Westbury's church is unusual in that it has a completely detatched bell tower, something more common on the continent than it is in Europe
On the east side of the door frame lead into the south porch are these two medieval 'crusader crosses'
Inside the north porch is this fragment of a late 13th century coffin, discovered when the Chantry Chapel was rebuilt in 1862
The font is a very simple, unadorned Norman bowl atop an Elizabethan pedestal
Detail of a dragon carved on the font base. The base is dated 1581 and is carved with the arms of Elizabeth I
Near the lectern is this glass case which houses a copy of John Foxe's 'Book of Martyrs'
To the south of the altar is a lovely eight-hole rose piscina, here lit up with lovely colours from the stained glass window above
Memorial to Frederick Wintle (d. 1817) on the north side of the chancel. The stone mason has placed 'Asia' where Australia should be on the globe
