Holy Trinity, Bledlow, stands in a beautiful spring line village at the foot of the Chilterns. One of England's 1,000 best churches and a Grade I listed building, this Romanesque church dates mainly from the 12th and 13th centuries, and is largely unaltered.
* Its tower has eight bells;
* the south porch contains Buckinghamshire's oldest doors;
the nave has six massive pillars of 1200, each with different foliage patterns at the top;
the Norman font is in the Aylesbury style; and
fragments of medieval paintings and 16th century texts are on the walls. More
|The church has featured in Midsomer Murders (The Killings at Badger's Drift , A Worm in the Bud, Birds of Prey, and Death's Shadow), Miss Marple, and in The Four Feathers. John Nettles writes 'The churches where we film are romantic and haunting. One of my favourites is Bledlow Church because I love its architecture and simplicity.'
