Surrounded by cooling towers and pylons

This imposing Medieval church is set in the water meadows by the Trent, with cooling towers and pylons nearby - ancient and modern juxtaposed. It has a sturdy tower and lofty clerestoried nave.

Inside, there are Medieval tombs, some interesting 14th-century stained glass as well as an effigy of a lady holding what is probably a heart.

There are also two surviving panels of an Easter sepulchre.

    I visited this evocative church today on a lovely summers day but was dismayed to see water had obviously got in during the recent rain and some of the ceiling had come down. There was afair bit of debris on the floor. Looking up I could see daylight through parts of the roof, so this will get worse.

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.

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.
