Getting here

The small late medieval church of St. Andrew has an early 17th century north chapel and a tower from around 1800, heightened when the whole church was later restored. Due to its proximity to the big house, there are a number of interesting memorials.  The magnificent Napier memorial is in the north aisle.  The earliest known monuments of the Churchill family (including a 17thC Winston) are in the nave aisle by the chancel step.  On the north wall is a monument to the younger brother of the Churchill for whom a grateful nation built Blenheim Palace.  On the south wall is a memorial to Henry Digby, who commanded the HMS Africa at the Battle of Trafalgar.
