St Andrews Old Church

Once thought to be the smallest church in England although that honour goes to a Wiltshire Church at Bremilham. It was actually once part of a bigger church dating back to the 12th-century although a fragment of a 9th-century cross has been found suggesting an even older building. The church stands beside the B1268, a road which was built to bypass the village of Upleatham in the late 19th-century. The old map shows a church isolated from the Victorian village, suggesting that the medieval village mentioned in the Domesday Book would have been clustered around the church.
