St. Swithen, Brookthorpe, Gloucestershire


The church of St. Swithen is a small but ancient building of stone in the First Pointed or Early English style of the 13th century, consisting of chancel, nave, north aisle, south porch and a western saddle-backed tower, containing a clock and 2 bells: in the cornice of the south porch, rudely cut, is a curious chronogram referring to the martyrdom of Charles I. A memorial window was placed, about 1897, to the Rev. Stuart Majendie B.A. vicar 1883-95; and there is another to the Rev. Dr. Bailey, a former vicar: the church was completely restored in 1892 at a cost of £1,200, and affords 110 sittings.
