Feature Sets

Substantially of 12thc. date but restored in 1861 and 1893, the church comprises a nave with plain N arcade, a N porch, chancel, N vestry and organ chamber. During one of the 19thc. restorations, it was clad in yellow ashlar and the plain S doorway reset. The church contains a plain font.


Wick was one of the chapels of Pershore St Andrew's. At DS Wick formed part of Westminster Abbey's great manor of Pershore; most of the estate seems to have been held by the abbot in demesne, but one hide was held by Urse and a half hide by Gilberte. Three virgates were given to Peter de Wick in the 12thc.





The font is of uncertain date. According to VCH, it appears to be 'ancient' but recent.
