St Mary, Prior's Norton, Glos
Listed in BofE as plain Norton, the church is on a rise east of the main A38. Locked but keyholder listed. There is nowhere to park at all without blocking the road, so risked parking in someone's large forecourt. Mr Neil began to feel he had been here before (but knowing him he never went inside as he doesn't like hunting down keys!). Perp west tower, nave, S porch and chancel. A little dull and over-restored. Handsome shafted east window, earliest Dec, of two lights, and clearly original. There is a coffin lid under the tower, nothing else to report.
