Feature Sets

In grey/pink sandstone, this small church comprises a chancel, nave, modern N aisle and S porch. The chancel has lancet windows with deeply splayed reveals, and the doorway is of similar date. The font is the only feature that might be ascribed to the Romanesque period.


The church, according to the VCH, was a chapelry of nearby Claverdon from about the middle of the 12thc., although the present building is no earlier than early 13thc.





Pevsner does not mention the font, but Houghton includes it among his Norman fonts. The bowl is generally smaller than the usual run of Warwickshire Romanesque fonts.
