The origins of the Church of St Sidwell date back to Saxon times. It was rebuilt in 1812 by the then relatively unknown architect William Burgess. A chancel was added in 1871 and the tower was rebuilt in 1900. A high explosive bomb dropped on the morning of 4 May 1942 caused severe damage to the church. It was completely replaced in 1957-8 by a new church designed by local architects Lucas, Roberts & Brown.
