Feature Sets

Built of grey stone rubble, the church consists of a W tower, a nave with S porch, N and S transepts and a chancel with N vestry and organ chamber. Only the font bears Romanesque sculpture.


Littleton was held by the abbot and convent of Evesham from the 8thc. to the 16thc.





The only other font in Worcester to bear such deeply incised decoration is at Aston Somerville, 10 km to the S, although the motifs are different. Pevsner compares the present font with that at Suckley, but the lozenges on the latter are crudely chip- carved and asymmetrical, lacking the precision of the work at Middle Littleton.
