St Nicholas

Set in the woods near the village of Lower Oddington, St Nicholas is a 12th century church with an important 14th century Doom painting. 

We hold regular services on the third Sunday of the month, Easter to September, on St Nicholas Day 6th December and on Christmas Eve. The December services are by candlelight as we do not have electricity or water.

The church is open daily for visitors.
