Feature Sets

St Nicholas is a small 13th century church that was rebuilt and restored in 1802 and in the mid 19th century. The font is the only 12th century carving in the church.


The DB only records that William Durus held West Tytherton of Alvred.





This font is unusual in Wiltshire, as it has carving all over it. Most fonts have decoration set within discrete bands or areas, with large areas of undecorated stone.

The church also has a 12th century bell, similar in form to the one at Keevil.
