All Saints, Compton Greenfield, South Gloucestershire

Most of the village has moved away to the east and the main road, to Easter Compton, and that was where a keyholder lived. Luckily there is a path across a green field as a short cut, because the church is reached by quite a roundabout route and has only one farm and its associated buildings for company. The principle interest however can be seen without the key, the fine Norman south doorway. The rest may be Norman in origin but all over restored or rebuilt apart fron the medieval tower. Scraped interior.
