      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This beautiful Parish Church dominates the town of Cirencester. It is the largest parish church in the country and sometimes it is confused with the former Cirencester Abbey which is close by. Known as the wool church it has so many lovely features. Nave built in around 1520 but raised in height by 20 foot. An inverted V marks the original roofline. Tower, funds taken from the Earl of Kent and Salisbury who were executed in the market place paid for this. Lady Chapel has a memorial to Humphrey Bridges and Thomas Master. Also Tom and Jerry the cat and mouse looking down from the roof! The pulpit has a sermon timer although it is not used today. You can just wander in to this beautiful church and light a candle. As you leave dont forget to go into the Abbey grounds with its famous Roman Wall.
