St George's Church Kelmscott

Kelmscott Church

"The existence of Kelmscott has never been convincingly accounted for - it appears at some unknown time, simply to have occurred."

St George's, Kelmscott is tucked away in the far west corner of the county of Oxfordshire and is part of the Benefice of Shill Valley and Broadshire. The church is a simple rustic building, the nave and chancel being built in the late 12th century and the transepts being added in the mid 13th century.

One service a month, Parish Communion, is held at 10.30 am on the first Sunday of each month.

He is buried in the churchyard. St George's, which relies heavily on the donations received from the visitors to the Manor which is open during the summer months.
