My Visit To St Nicholas’s
Although I am not an attender of organised religion I have a fascination with old buildings including churches, I hope to build a quality photo gallery of Gloucestershire churches on aboutglos. As Hardwicke church is my closest church and I needed to test my new bike (my plan to lose 7 stone over the summer) I hopped on my new bike and reached St Nicholas’s church, It was a wonderful day to take photos and my biggest fear that a funeral would be in progress didn’t materialise. The last time I spent time here was for a year 10 history project, I was trying to find historical figures in the graveyard. This research wasn’t used as I found a house down pound lane that Oliver Cromwell stayed in before marching on Gloucester.
About Hardwicke Church
Winebaud de Ballon in 1092 gave a church called Hardwicke to Bermondsey Priory, so this church is classified as norman in heritage. Bermondsey Priory is said to have sold that church in the later 13th or the 14th century. Full History
