About us

St Denys Church, Northmoor

St Denys Parish Church is a Grade 1 Listed Building, constructed of rough limestone blocks and surrounded by its own well-tended churchyard in the centre of Northmoor village.

The village with its outlying hamlets of Moreton and Bablockhythe sits in a long loop of the river Thames below its confluence with the river Windrush. This is still essentially an agricultural landscape of arable, pasture and meadow.

It is a small cruciform church dating from the early 14th century, with a 15th century west tower.

The communion rail is late 17th century, said to have come from St. John’s College chapel. St. John’s still retains the patronage.
