This very handsome church is one of the best in Cambridgeshire with its famously skewed church spire which some compare to Chesterfield – although there really isn’t much comparison – a slightly lopsided spire here compared to the superb twisted spire further north.
The bulk of the church is 13th Century and as was usual building continued for the next hundred years or so. The tower is late 14th Century, the spire 15th. Everything was restored, as usual, by the Victorians in the 1870s, but the church looks very ancient still.
Bourn is an attractive village and the church worth a look.
