Spectacular life-size monuments
This simple 700-year-old church sits next to Spetchley Park and gardens. Spectacular historic monuments to the Berkeley family who own the Park, feature life-size figures in glorious seventeenth-century costume. Particularly splendid is the central monument in the south chapel to Sir Rowland Berkeley (died 1611) and his wife, lying under an arched canopy with obelisks at the four corners.
