Hewelsfield Church, Gloucestershire

The church of St Mary Magdalen has a Norman period nave, so it was founded in the 12th Century. It is considered to be on the site of Celtic origins as the churchyard is circular, although this is pretty much circumstantial evidence. There is a motte and bailey castle nearby, so the church was almost certainly built during that period.

The Chancel was rebuilt in the 13th Century and the north transept enlarged in the 16th. Otherwise, there does not seem to be anything more remarkable about this little church.
