Church End in Bledlow is a conservation area with many interesting buildings. The church was built mainly during the 12th and 13th centuries, and remains largely unaltered. The prominent tower houses eight bells.
Enter through the south porch and the oldest working doors in Buckinghamshire, with strap hinges and a draw door. Four steep steps descend to the nave, which is dominated by six massive pillars dating from 1200, each with a different foliage pattern at the top. Look out for the Norman font in the Aylesbury style, and the recently conserved medieval wall paintings and 16th century texts. The windows contain some very good Victorian stained glass, and there is some attractive modern needlework.
This church is a gem and has featured in the television detective series Midsomer Murders and Miss Marple, together with the film The Four Feathers.
Holy Trinity has eight bells that are rung at present on the first Sunday of each month and for special services. Bell ringers are very friendly people and would very much welcome anyone who would like to try their hand at ringing!!
On the first Wednesday of each month the ladies of the parish get together at The Lions in Bledlow at 12 noon for a social gathering and a bite to eat! If you would like to join us, please come along and introduce yourself.
