About Us

The Parish
The parish of Monkton Farleigh includes the village itself and Pinckney Green, Farleigh Rise and Farleigh Wick, which together have a population of about 400 people.

The Church
The earliest part of the church is the late 12th century Norman door, which is round headed and decorated with zigzag moulding. The inner order of the arch has been cut away, probably in the restoration in 1874. The square tower is probably 13th century and has a saddleback roof. There is a Norman font. Apart from these features, the church was rebuilt in successive stages in 1844 and 1874. On the south side of the chancel there is a one storey rectangular addition, built as a Sunday School but now used as a vestry.


A service of Holy Communion is usually held at 10.00am on several Sundays each month.  

In addition, there is a Benefice Communion service once each month which is held at a different church each month.

Tea and coffee are served after each service.

Details of forthcoming services can be found by following the link to the Services and Events section of this website or by going to Benefice website.


The parish is part of the Benefice of North Bradford-on-Avon and Villages, together with the parishes of St. James (South Wraxall), St. Nicholas (Winsley) and Christ Church (Bradford on Avon).

Visiting St Peter's

The church is open to visitors every day from 10.00am to 5.00pm.  The churchyard is open at all times.

The church does not have its own car park and so visitors arriving by car should park in the street.  When parking please do not block access to any of the neighbouring properties.

A visitors book is available for your comments.

Toilet facilities are only available during services.


St Peter's relies of the generosity of its members and other supporters to raise the funds needed to keep the church open.   Please go to the Donate page of this site to find out how you can give.
