The Parish Church of All Saints

(Fitela's farm) is one of the many beautiful villages in the valley of the Salisbury Avon. The church (All Saints) has a perpendicular tower with spire. The nave arcades are decorated with a perpendicular clerestory and roof, supported upon good stone corbels. The chancel arch is early english, and on either side of it are two blocked squints, In the chancel is an altar-tomb to the Hicks-Beach family and set into the back of it is a brass to Roger Jay (1612), with curious punning inscription. The font is Norman.           [source: The Little Guide, Methuen 1949]
