The history of the Besfords

Besford Church

The church of St Peter in Besford is a wonderful example of English church architecture and one of only a few timber frame churches in England.

The church is included in Simon Jenkins’ England’s 1000 Best Churches. It is located on Harewell Lane in Besford, United Kingdom.

Inside there are important monuments to the Harewell and Sebright families, as well as a pre-Reformation rood screen and Jacobean altar rails.
