St Arilda's Church, Oldbury on the Hill

Recent Photograph of St Arilda's Church (Oldbury on the Hill)

“OLDBURY ON THE HILL. It is over the fields from Didmarton and has nothing but its church to see - used once a year, we are told. The little tower has stood four centuries and has a fine moulded arch. The porch has a scratch dial and several pilgrim crosses, and the medieval east window has a fragment of medieval glass. Here is one of the old-fashioned two-decker pulpits for the parson and his clerk, an old altar table and ancient rails; and the primitive little chalice font is perhaps the oldest possession.”
