St. Mary Magdalene, Flaunden

St. Mary Magdalene, Flaunden

DSCN0588A delightful little church which is something of an ecclesiastical oddity. The church is in Hertfordshire but is linked with the Chenies Benefice which is in Buckinghamshire and a part of the Diocese of Oxford. It was built in 1838 and is George Gilbert Scott’s first church, built for his Uncle who was Rector.

Unfortunately it wasn’t open but is open for Teas on a Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday over the summer months. There is a website at http://www.cheniesbenefice.org which gives a good history of the church and details of when it is open. Worth a look.
