18 Church St, Wareham BH20 4ND, UK – 01929 552684
A welcoming church where the people of Wareham have worshipped for centuries.
Beautiful historic Anglican church in the Saxon town of Wareham.
North St, Wareham BH20 4AG, UK – 01929 550905
Very interesting church dating from the 11th century and in the Saxon style. Examples of early wall decoration are visible and there is a monumental tomb of Lawrence of Arabia within the building, although he is actually buried several miles away at Clouds Hill. This church is not regularly used and is often locked. The key is obtainable from Joy's menswear shop just a few yards down the road.
This amazing Saxon church holds the sculptor of T.E. Lawrence by Eric Kennington. Lawrence, while living at Clouds Hill, would come to Wareham on his motorbike and frequent a nearby cafe. The small church, just inside the old walls of the town, still has services and is worthy of a visit for its simple architecture as much as to see the amazing sculpture. Opening times are variable and, when closed, the visitor is directed to a nearby shop to request the key.
