A visit to St Mary The Virgin Church at Arlingham, with the Stroud U3A Church History and Architecture Group

This church replaced a previous one, and has changed little since it was built in the 14th century

12 arm brass chandelier, made about 1780 in Bristol

There are several 18th century monuments


The red stained glass windows are 14th century


Bell from HMS Arlingham.       Victorian stone font, with the previous wooden font (1781), converted to an alms box.

This board mentions charities in the 1600s

The clock only has one hand


There are several tea-caddy tombs
