This church, of 1848, by Henry Chetton, replaces an earlier one, which contained 12thc. sculpture. None of the latter is preserved in the new church, but outside, at the base of the tower, are a number of voussoirs reassembled to form an arch.
Baddesley Ensor was formerly in the parish of Polesworth, and there was said to be a chapel dedicated to St.Nicholas which belonged to Polesworth Nunnery.

In the churchyard at the S side of the tower 11 voussoirs have been formed into an arch. Voussoir 5 has no surface decoration, voussoir 7 is barely readable and there appears to be a fragment with pellet decoration wedged between voussoirs five and six. The rest of the voussoirs are carved with two rows of centrifugal chevron lateral to the face, with cogwheel edge. The chevron is of the profile roll/hollow, with a fine roll flanking the hollow.
