Feature Sets

The church consists of a rebuilt chancel, a nave, aisles, and a W tower. This church has a complicated history that was documented by RCHME in the Churches of South-East Wiltshire. The lowest part of the tower dates from the 12th century and has pilaster buttresses, but most of the church belongs to the 13th and 15th centuries.


At the time of the Domesday Survey Idmiston belonged to the church of Glastonbury. There was land for 7 ploughs, of which 2.5 hides belonged to Humphrey. No church of Idmiston is mentioned.
