We are so sorry to cause any inconvenience, but the Church & Churchyard at Holy Cross Binsted, unfortunately, will be temporarily closed on occasions over the next couple of months while the contractors repair the storm damage to our beautiful 12th Century church due to Health & Safety reasons.


The good news is that it is being restored and will look even more beautiful than before when it is completed!
