The website 'Britain Express' says of us, "Standing beside Boynton Hall manor is this delightful Georgian brick and stone church with a 15th century tower. The exterior of St Andrew's gives little clue to the wonderful Georgian Gothic interior that awaits inside. The east end of the church is set aside as the mausoleum of the Strickland family of Boynton Hall. Unfortunately the mausoleum is inaccessible, though you can view the Strickland tombs through the wrought iron barrier behind the altar.

"William Strickland, builder of the Hall, was said to have brought the first wild turkey to Britain from America in the late 16th century. As a result, there are carved and painted turkeys all over the church; most notable is the lectern, shaped like a turkey instead of the traditional eagle."

A quirky, wonderful period piece."
