Guided Tours

Work on the new Chancel roof will commence on 1st July 2019 for 12 weeks

Unfortunately this means that we are unable to offer guided tours this summer.


The history and heritage of the this ancient and spiritual church building, and the people associated with it, is considerable.

The ‘new’ church, built in 1512, just 3 years after Henry VIII was crowned King of England, replaced a much older church. There is documentary evidence dated 1140 in the reign of King Stephen, which refer to a church in Altham, although there is other evidence which points to a church here during Saxon times.

Guided tours are available to interested groups.

The tour takes about an hour and a quarter.
