St. Nicholas, East Grafton, Wiltshire, England



We visited St. Nicholas in East Grafton in November 2004; the winter sun shone brilliantly but it was bitterly cold, and the shadows were long.  We received a warm welcome from a church warden who was in the building at the time of our visit - "Thank You" for your time telling us about this lovely building

We were invited to photograph the church and gravestones and to copy a list of burials which was made a few years before.  This list must have been such a lot of work to the people who recorded inscriptions on gravestones - it was a lot of work for us and we only had to copy it!  What foresight these church members had; our photographs show that some of the inscriptions are now eroded too much to read but thanks to these diligent people we now have a permanent record of what was inscribed.

The church of St. Nicholas is a Grade II* listed building - more information about the listing can be found at the  Historic England  website.  The Lychgate and railings are also listed - see details at  Lychgate.

The church has its own website at:  www.savernaketeam.org.uk/grafton-and-katharines/east-grafton/.  Apart from information about itself it tells us the roof is in need of repair and they need to raise £33,000 - a huge amount for a small parish like this.  Should you be able to make a donation, contact details for church wardens and the minister are given.
