A church on the edge of a battle site

In its circle of trees, overlooking the Civil War battle site of Edge Hill, this church is approached up steps from the Kineton to Southam road. It is especially lovely in late spring when the primroses are blooming in the churchyard.

The building appears long, low and massive, the result of extensions over the centuries. The eastern end of the nave is 12th-century, the westward extension 14th, the clerestory was added in the 15th, the charming tower in the 17th and the present chancel was built about 1730, when a north transept was added over a burial vault.

The transept chapel has three windows glazed with lovely 16th-century Italian glass. The few monuments are of good quality.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as ‘Keyholder nearby’, this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Disabled access

Difficult wheelchair access through churchyard with steps.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
