Corsham Church

Spire logo

This place has been a centre of Christian worship for over one thousand years. There was certainly a Saxon church on this site long before the Normans invaded England in 1066 A.D. It is recorded that William the Conqueror granted the church at Corsham to the Abbey of St. Stephen at Caen in Normandy. The present building dates from the middle of the twelfth century, but there have been many changes and additions since then, ending with a major restoration in Victorian times.

Some key information is given below but if you would like to know more about us there is much more in our St Bart’s Welcome Leaflet – pick up a copy in church or download a copy by clicking on the blue link.
