Dual-village visit to Wixford and Salford Priors: First we see St. Milburga’s, Wixford, for its De Cruwe brass, famous yew-tree and intriguing graffiti. Later Dr Stephen Roberts will guide a visit  to St Matthews, Salford Priors, a beautiful part-Norman church with 1630s additions and unusual mid-C17 Clark family monuments.  N.B. A prompt start is needed and access is difficult (please car-share if possible).
