St Birnus is a small Catholic church in Dorchester Oxfordshire. I remember being taken there on some occasion by my mother when I was quite young. I remember little about it other than where it was. I had the chance to visit it a few years ago and took a few photos. The church was originally built in the 1850s by architect William Wardell
St Birnus as you walk through the churchyard to it
It is quite a small churchyard with a few graves in it.
Round what is the front you can see this statue which I think is St Birnus, the photo on the right is stitched as at the time I did not have a wide angle lens.
The eternal architecture is worth stopping to looking at
but inside will knock your socks off. The following photos were taken freehand so could be a bit out of focus.
Stained galss and a statue of St Birnus can be seen in the nave.
The main entrance is through the gate here and on Monday they say a Latin Mass but if you don't want to go then it is still worth looking round and spend some time in the church
