This large attractive church, with its quiet, peaceful churchyard, is a refuge from busy Leicester. It is one of five surviving from the medieval town, with a tower intriguingly sited at its north-east corner.
Built from the twelfth to nineteenth centuries, it includes a Norman doorway and a richly carved thirteenth-century font.
