Feature Sets

A restored late 12thc. or 13thc. church comprising a single-cell nave with a plain S doorway, a square-ended Victorian chancel and a W tower. It contains a plain Romanesque font.


There was a church in Bepton in 1086.





According to the VCH, the font is modern: this seems unlikely
