St. Lawrence, Bovingdon

St. Lawrence, Bovingdon

St. Lawrence is set amongst a large churchyard with an avenue of yew trees.

Unfortunately, I found the church locked. Looking at the website,, which is very well produced I found a church history to download and an article about the World War 1 memorial but no details of if the church is ever open other than for a service, or even if a visit could be arranged. It also says ‘We hope that St Lawrence will always be a welcoming place where everyone can feel at home.’ I would think that the best way of welcoming people would be by opening the doors wide and letting them come in – even if this was only on an afternoon a week, as long as it is advertised.

I have to rate St. Lawrence as very poor which is a shame as this is a church which would be well worth visiting, a wasted opportunity.
