Feature Sets

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.

Exterior Decoration


Prior to the 1960s the arch was situated above a passageway between cottages in Church Row, some distance away, and recorded by Pevsner in that position. (See entry on Atherston for details of a complete doorway of three orders taken from the church at Baddesley Ensor when it was demolished).
