Description

The hamlet of Fawley is set on the plateau above the Hambleden Valley and has been in existence since Anglo Saxon times.

The church sits on a small rise above the village pond, at a junction of two tracks. It lies within a small enclosed churchyard with brick and flint walls. The lychgate, is a timber and tile structure. The two mausolea to the left of the path dominate the grassy churchyard.

The parish  of Fawley was amalgamated with that of Hambleden in 1968 and now forms part of the Hambleden Group of Churches. Today the church is at the heart of village life. All are most welcome.
