Walked to church from Fawsley Hall hotel. It was very quaint and well preserved. Surrounded by lovely countryside with sheep in fields.

What a surprise this small church turned out to be. It was beautifully kept and had plenty to interest the visitor. If passing do call in and take a look.

Wonderful church with fantastic medieval features. Truly a gem set in beautiful countryside. The 13th century font and the 14th century bell set are outstanding.

We stayed at the fabulous nearby hotel, Fawsley Hall, and thought we’d have a look at the church a short walk away. It is truly beautiful, very small, but full of history; very interesting and well worth a visit
