Little Whelnetham

St Mary Magdalene Church

This medieval church opens only four times per year. The grounds surrounding the church building hide some interesting features including varying lengths of grassland, wooded areas, old gravestones covered with lichens and mosses, large ant hills and historic ruins, which are great habitats for wildflowers, invertebrates, wall plants, basking reptiles and small mammals.

Administered by the Revd Sharon Potter, and cared for by friends of the church, the site can be found on the road to Bradfield St George
