BIDDESTONE

Come on and take my hand,
let me show you a jewel of our land.
An delightful oasis of history,
probably a harbour of mystery.
The character of Cotswold stone,
not some village that's a clone.
Each house probably has its story,
they stand together in amazing glory.
Then there is the Norman church that is a delight,
though I wouldn't want to be in the graveyard at night.

I could not believe my eyes when I found this beautiful little Norman church,
it really is a delight to the eyes. I felt like a time traveller, a history reveller.

These incredible enclosed pews are a delight and really make the church feel special. I have only seen this arrangement once before.

What a charming area for the children on a Sunday morning, for coffee mornings or evening meetings. It says welcome to Gods house, more than anything I have seen before.

The little seat below is such a loving touch, so quaint, it touches the heart.
