St Lawrence Church is a 15th century wool Church situated in the beautiful riverside market town of Lechlade-on-Thames on the edge of the Cotswolds. It was made famous by the poet Shelley, who stayed at the New Inn in August 1815 and wrote ‘Stanzas in Lechlade Churchyard’:

                                  "Thou too, aereal Pile! Whose pinnacles

                                        Point from one shrine like pyramids of fire

                                        Obeyist in silence their sweet solemn spells,

                                        Clothing in hues of Heaven thy dim and distant spire

                                        Around whose lessening and invisible height

                                        Gather among the stars the clouds of night".
