St. Giles, Hook, Dorset


The parish church of St. Giles is an ancient building of stone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, south aisle, and an embattled south-western tower, containing one bell: in 1875 it was restored and almost entirely rebuilt, at the sole expense of Blanche late Countess of Sandwich, who died 20 March, 1894: there are 110 sittings.
