Yes, I think St. Giles at Stoke Poges, it’s where the poet Thomas Grey wrote his famou Elegy and one of my aunts got married.

Yes, definitely St Giles, Stoke Poges. The church’s website has a selection of old photos – I don’t think they include this one, but there are some similar ones. Wouldn’t it be nice if all churches had a similar “history” section on their sites?

A beautiful looking church. Have been delving around and I agree that it looks like St Giles Stoke Poges pre 1900?. I read that the ivy had to be taken down as it was damaging the structure. Also the spire was removed in 1924? AS I have not seen it in reality, is it still as pretty looking now??

Perhaps having ‘SPChurch.png’ as the filename wasn’t the best idea… has another photo.

Congratulations to David Lea, you were the first to respond with the correct answer. Thanks to all of you that guessed correctly, it was indeed St. Giles at Stoke Poges.
