All Saints Church, Shorncote

Recent Photograph of All Saints Church (Shorncote)

There isn't much to Shorncote, apart from a few cottages, and a couple of farms, which explains perhaps why the church now is vested in the Churches Conservation Trust. The church is simple, nave and chancel with a north transept and south porch. The bellcote however is something special, to house three bells, and was a feature which was to reoccur in other churches today. Norman doorways, the north blocked and the more elaborate.
