St Edmund's is a peaceful country church which has been in constant use for over 900 years. It stands in the south-east corner within the walls of the Roman town Venta Icenorum. All that remains of the town are the ramparts, some walling and a tower. Many Roman bricks were used in the building of the church and can be seen in the surrounds of doors and windows. The nave is Perpendicular and the chancel is 13th century with large lancet windows. A very faint St Christopher wall painting is visible on the south wall of the nave and St John the Evangelist holds a chalice with a dragon emerging from it near the pulpit. The interesting 15th century font has carved evangelistic symbols, angels, the arms of Edward the Confessor, emblems of the Trinity, the Arms of the Diocese and instruments of the passion.
