Chapel of St Lawrence, Warminster
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: 13th-century exterior details
Around the exterior and the north porch are several grimacing gargoyles.
The Chapel was an unexpected delight. The interior has been so heavily remodelled over the years that much of the original medieval detail has been lost, but what is really fascinating about St Lawrence's is its status as a 'peculiar', owned by the townsfolk of Warminster. It won't take long to explore the church, but it is worth reading the fascinating history.
