Like many village churches Chetnole's has evolved over the centuries, but somehow the result here is exceptionally pleasing. As you approach you are confronted with a magnificent C15 tower with a working clock and some intriguing gargoyles.
The nave is C13 with a wooden barrel roof and one original lancet window. The chancel and north aisle are by Slater (1859 - 65). There is a most attractive, if tiny, organ in the chancel.
This is a delightful little church.
