Chitterne’s two churches

A church near you, logoA church near you, ChitterneThe church we use is sometimes called All Saints’ and sometimes All Saints’ and St Mary’s. The only part of the village’s other church, the ancient medieval church of Chitterne St Mary, what remains is the chancel, on the extreme right in the drawing above. The rest of the church was demolished in 1861 when the two Chitterne churches were amalgamated. The building has been dated at about 1450 but there had presumably been a church here since at least 1319 which is the date of the first known vicar under the patronage of the Dean and Chapter of Salisbury. One of the two bells of St Mary’s, which now hang in the new church, was made by John Barbur of Salisbury whose will is dated 1403, so that also suggests an earlier date.
