The parish church of Saint Birinus at Morgan's Vale was built as a chapel of ease to Downton in 1894-96. It is a red brick Gothic Revival building with stone dressings and Perpendicular Gothic style windows. It was designed by the Gothic Revival architect C. E. Ponting of Marlborough in the style of his architectural contemporary W. D. Caroe.
