Welcome to the website of All Saints Church, Wytham in Oxfordshire, UK.
There has been a church in Wytham, as far as we know, since at least 1135. The current building was constructed by Montague Bertie, 5th Earl of Abingdon, in 1811 -1812, using materials from its predecessor and from Cumnor Place, or Hall, which had recently been demolished.
The church contains many artefacts and memorials from the 17th Century, and a few - mainly stained glass - from much earlier. Some of the glass may have been made as early as the end of the fourteenth century. Much of the stonework came from Cumnor Hall, including two, perhaps three windows on the south side of the church. The big east window had to be cut down to fit, and if you look carefully the pictures within the frame can be seen to be incomplete.
Friends Of All Saints Church
The Friends of All Saints is an association aimed at uniting all those who love and value the church of All Saints, Wytham and its place in the community. We run many social and other events each year and help raise funds for the structure and maintenance of our Church building. For more information on our activities and how to join The Friends see: Friends of All Saints, Wytham.
The works on the roof are almost completed, so we no longer have tiles available for sponsorship. A big thank you goes out to all of those who supported us – you were all very generous and it has made a tremendous difference to our fund-raising – THANK YOU!
