An unexpected church in a very odd location but the views of high Wycombe are great! Unfortunately the church tower is closed due to needing restoration, meaning you are no longer able to climb to the top. Still worth a visit though!

Well worth a walk up the hill. Very knowledgeable guide who clearly loves the church. Look out for the special font and the painting that includes Judas. Dogs are allowed in too!

This is a lovely church on top of a hill and the view is made even better if you pay £2 to climb it's tower. Skip the Hell Fire Caves and visit this church.

The climb up the hill was worth the slog so we could see the road built with the chalk from the cave and also West Wycombe house. The church was locked but the grave yard was interesting.

We didn't actually go inside the church but used the grounds at the back (use the paved path) so that we had a view of the surrounding countryside including West Wycombe Park. There is a large grass car park just by the church, beautiful viewing...More
