All Saints, Burythorpe
The church of All Saints stands on a hillside to the west of the village, from where there are commanding views over the surrounding countryside. On a clear day, you can see the White Horse above Kilburn. You reach the church along a narrow lane through the fields. The present church, which replaced a much older building of which nothing now remains, was built in 1857-8 by JB and W Atkinson. The roof is remarkably steep. Inside, the church is simple and appealing, with wooden pews and a fine east window featuring stained glass by Gibbs of London. The church, so picturesque and surrounded by splendid countryside is a popular venue for weddings.
