Ask at the records office.
They may not have access to the register, but it's a good starting point.
All census look up transcriptions are Crown Copyright http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/

GENUKI often has the location for the parish registers (eg the date range deposited at the record office). If you do a search on "GENUKI + placename" it usually gets the relevant page - if the placename is common try adding the county.

Most older parish registers that survive seem to be at the records office, but a few churches have held on to theirs - sometimes the church has a website that will give details.

If you want microfiche/film of the original registers see my website at
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~framland/acts/csf.htm

I have not upadated the page for a while so the prices etc. could be out of date.
Cheers
