Feature Sets

The ashlar-faced church comprises chancel with south vestry, nave, N porch and W tower. It dates from 1832 with the exception of the 15thc. tower. The only Romanesque feature is the reworked font.


Domesday Book records that St Mary's Abbey, Wilton, held Stanton St Bernard before and after the Conquest, and was tenant-in-chief.

VCH notes that a church at Stanford St Bernard is recorded in 1267 (quoting Charters and Documents illustrating the History of Salisbury, ed. W. H. Rich Jones and W. Dunn Macray, Rolls Series, 1891, 344-5). It was attached to the conventual church of Wilton as a prebend by the end of the 13thc.
