Feature Sets

The original church was rebuilt between 1866 and 1876 to designs by T. H. Wyatt. The only Romanesque feature is the reused font bowl.


VCH records that there was a rector of Semley and therefore presumably a church in c. 1191. Wilton Abbey was patron of the church until the Dissolution. There is no entry for Semley in the Domesday Survey.
