Feature Sets

A parish church essentially of the 13thc. with a surviving reset Romanesque doorway in the S aisle wall.


At the end of the 11thc., Ralph de Limesi endowed his newly found priory of Hertford with the lands of Long Itchington, and his son gave the church to the Priory. Land divisions led to the advowson being halved in 1342, one part remaining with Hertford, and the other half eventually allocated to William de Clinton, who used it to endow a college of chantry priests at Maxstoke, this later becoming an Augustinian Priory.


Exterior Features



Pevsner suggestsc.1190 for the doorway. Waterleaf is an unusual feature in Warwickshire, it may also be seen in the crypt at Berkswell.
