A green frog

We almost missed this little frog spewing foliage, as he is hidden in the carving on the chancel screen in this village church, along with many other birds, beasts and insects.  Look for him at about eye-height on the upright on the left side of the chancel arch, on the north-west face.  He is quite a rarity; there cannot be many foliage-spewing frogs around!

  • North window depicting events from the life of St Aldhelm, Bishopstrow's patron saint and the planter of the Bishop's Tree (treo) after which the village is said to be named.
  • Fine walks up onto the edge of Salisbury Plain.
