St.Peter and St. Paul Little(Bardfield) Saling is a classic 14th century parish church, Grade 1 listed constructed of flint and some local stone.
The round tower is one of a group of 6 remaining in Essex and an unusually late example. Of all the round tower churches in the United Kingdom this is the only example of the decorated period and therefore apparently the last of its kind to be built in mediaeval times. One person who would have been pleased to see the round tower was the Bishop of Pisa who came to dedicate the Church in the early 14th century..
Inside there is an Elizabethan carved pulpit and fine examples of a 14th century piscina and sedilia. There is also an 18th century chamber organ once the property of Sir George Elvey, composer and organist at the Chapel Royal.
At the West end of the South aisle there is some magnificent straw work, a local craft in the 19th century.
We have 2 services a month, A Holy Communion at 9.30am on the 4th Sunday of the month and a Morning Prayer on the second Sunday at 11, to both of which children are very welcome. Our services are predominently traditional but we do include less traditional services from time to time or when the occasion requires it . We also hold other events in the Church such as concerts.
