Feature Sets

Teversal is a small village 3 miles W of Mansfield. The church lies to the W of the village and consists of a chancel, a nave with N and S aisles, and a W tower. Most of the fabric dates to the 13thc and later. The only Romanesque feature is the reset S nave doorway.


Whilst there is no mention of a church in Domesday Book, in 1066 'Tevreshalt' is listed as being in the ownership of Leofric (brother of Leofnoth), and in 1086 it passed to Geoffrey (Ridel), being Ralph son of Hubert tenant-in-chief.


Exterior Features



Pevsner considers the interior furnishings installed between 1637 and 1684 of exceptional completeness; considerable work on the upper parts of the tower and fenestration also took place at this time.
