Parish History 

Great Chalfield or Chalfield Magna lies a little to the north east of Bradford on Avon.  All Saints built as a private chapel adjoining the mediaeval manor house by the family of Tropenell during the 15th century. There is a  panelled cradle roof, a stone screen carved with heraldry, a Georgian three-decker pulpit and wall paintings depicting the life of St. Katherine.  The manor house is in the care of the National Trust.

The parish also includes Little Chalfield.
