St. Gabriel

All that remains of the ancient 13c church are the ruined walls.  It was finally abandoned in the 19c when the vicar of Whitchurch Canonicorum largely paid for the building of a new parish church about a mile away in the village Morcombelake.  The simple font with a cable moulding round it was moved to the new building and is still used for baptisms and part of the of the remains of the Rood screen was incorporated into the new chancel screen.
