Feature Sets

The church consists of chancel, nave, N aisle and W tower. The building is mainly 15thc. apart from parts of the nave arcade and N aisle which are 14thc. as is the N arcade. The S wall of the nave, which VCH suggests is earlier than the 14thc. (VCH, 217), was rebuilt when the 15thc. tower was constructed. The font is the only feature with 12thc. sculpture.


There is no reference to Renhold in the Domesday Survey. VCH records that Simon de Beauchamp gave Renhold to Newnham Priory in c. 1166. (VCH, 218)
