Sunday I moored up on public moorings by the Army Rowing Club which is just above Boveney Lock. Just back from the towpath is a small a church St Mary Magdalene, Boveney.
The church is owned by, would you believe, The Friends of Friendless Churches who bought it in 1983. A church has been on the site in one way or another since before the Norman conquests.
The earliest part of this building is circa 12 century. Its a strange looking building, of Chalk, Brick, Flint and Wood with a red tiled roof.
If you want to see around inside you only have to ask the Lock keeper for the key. What’s inside I don’t know I didn’t look. I got some idea about the lock being too far away, but apparently it isn’t .
