Feature Sets

The church consists of nave, chancel, N vestry, S porch, and timber-framed W bell-turret with shingled spire. The medieval lower timbers of the turret appear in the nave. The church was largely re-built in 1879 by Preedy. Surviving 12thc. features are N and S doorways to the nave, and an early to mid 12thc. corbel table on N and S sides of the nave. There is also a small plain round-headed window with an arcuated lintel just E of the S doorway. All the stonework is local red sandstone, except the modern N vestry.


The manor of Little Packington's first known tenant is said to have been Robert de Ceraso, in the time of Henry I, whose grandson and heir released his rights to William son of Gilbert, son of Picot, presumably about 1219. The advowson of the church was given by Sir Gilbert Picot to the Prior and Convent of Worcester, and was still their property in 1535. In 1542 the advowson was granted to the newly established Dean and Chapter of Worcester.

The church was made redundant in 1991.
