Feature Sets

These architectural fragments had been reused in the walls of a barn and were discovered when the building was demolished. They are now located in the courtyard of a private house at Quenington Court Farm.


There are two possible sources of the loose sculpture nearby. One is the 12thc church of St Swithin, still standing; the other is the site of the Preceptory of the Knights Hospitaller, on which Quenington Court now stands. In the mid-12thc Agnes de Lacy and her daughter Sibyl granted Quenington manor to the Knights Hospitallers, who built the Preceptory in c. 1193 (VCH vol. 7).


Loose Sculpture


Dr. Allan Brodie of the RCHME notified the fieldworkers of the loose stones at Court Farm. There are additional fragments from the 14thc and 15thc. It is believed by the owner that additional Romanesque fragments are within the walls of other farm structures.
