St Nicholas, Uphill

Alone on a hill above the Roman port of Axium this Norman church has a central tower, chancel, unroofed nave and a north porch sheltering a Norman doorway. The chancel was restored in 1846 by Thomas Knytton of Uphill Castle. The stiff climb to it is well rewarded, not least by the view over the marshes and the Bristol Channel.
