Luckington Parish Church is a delightful building located in an idyllic situation on the outskirts of this active village. Worship is offered three times a month and there are good links with the local school.

The church and Luckington Court next door were used in the BBC series of 'Pride and Prejudice'.   The church is popular for weddings and we welcome enquiries.

Grade 1 listed church dates back to 12th century.  It had alterations and additions made in the 15th century and in 1872 further restorations were undertaken using designs of English architect, Sir Arthur Blomfield.  

Architectural points of note: 

  • 12th century nave arcades resting on Norman columns of crudely carved capitals
  • the large Norman font, 27 inches across the bowl and once locked against witches
  • ancient stone pulpit, together with other examples of early English architecture
  • engravings of the Lord’s Prayer and the Ten Commandments dating from 1663
  • Fine stained glass windows

The composer Basil Harwood named his hymn tune to "Let all the world in every corner sing" after the village

The Parochial Church Council of this Church were very grateful to receive a grant from Wiltshire Historic Churches towards replastering and repainting work in the Church which took place in 2015.

The Parochial Church Council of the Church were delighted to be notified of its success in an application for the HLF Listed Place of Worship Roof Repair Fund.  The work started on repairing the roofs in May 2017 and due for completion in November 2017.
