Feature Sets

Single-aisled church, largely 19thc. Blocked-up, plain, round-headed 12thc doorway on N nave wall. Also some remains of a 12thc S doorway. A 12thc font is at W end of nave.


Also known as Buraston with Whetmore, Boraston was a chapel of Burford church.





According to Pevsner, the font is c. 1700, but, according to information in the church, it comes from Buildwas Abbey, which would suggest an earlier date. The church has no known dedication.
