HISTORY 

The ecclesiastical parish of Wolford encompasses the two civil parishes of Great Wolford and Little Wolford; the parish church of St Michael & All Angels is situated in Great Wolford.

There has been a church on this site, with its panoramic churchyard views across the valley towards Little Wolford, since Saxon times. The present church is a Grade 2 listed, early Victorian building by James Trubshaw, dating to the 1830s, although it is thought that the spire of its medieval predecessor was taken down and resurrected atop the new tower.  Some internal modifications were made in 1876 and 1885, but the layout has remained substantially unchanged, with a broad nave and large windows. The unusual east window, by Heinersdorf of Berlin, features four lights of painted rather than stained glass showing the four Evangelists.

The church is blessed with an excellent acoustic and sight-lines, making it an ideal venue for musical performance. The organ is a fine instrument built in 1876 by Charles Martin of Oxford.
