Feature Sets

Church consists of a W tower, a two-bay nave with N and S aisles, and chancel mostly of the 13thc. The upper part of the tower is 14thc. and the clerestory is of the Perpendicular period. There was a restoration by Kirk and Parry here in 1867. The W tower arch is done in the Transitional style of around 1200.


Though Dorrington is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, there is no mention of a church here in 1086.


Interior Features


Tower/Transept arches

The keeling, the polygonal forms, and the bell capitals suggest a date of c. 1200. Pevsner notes that the simple N doorway may be of the same period; this is possible though the only feature present is a chamfered impost.
