St Denys, Little Barford
From the south the crenellated tower and aisleless nave, with a fine 12th century doorway and windows from several periods at different levels, seem fortified and defensive but, arriving closer, one sees a delightful country church, originally Norman with additions and rebuilding in subsequent centuries. Notable features include an impressive 14th century font, the 15th century oak screen and carved piscina in the vestry, a 16th century brass, and a remarkable scheme of decoration and furnishing dating from Arthur Blomfield’s restoration of 1869 71. The west tower features an exquisite window (1887) by the Kempe Studio.

The church can be slightly difficult to find. Visitors coming from St Neots on the B1043 should turn right into a narrow gateway opposite a row of thatched cottages. On entering a private driveway, you will need to turn right over a large tree stump and down a narrow track between two buildings.
