A church with a hard shell and a soft heart

This remote medieval church sprawls across its rough-tufted churchyard, the sole survivor of the lost village of Wolfhamcote that lies buried to the north. Close to the church are two abandoned railways and a flourishing canal. Its crooked windows, stout buttresses and multicoloured patchwork stone give it a tough, almost brutish appearance, but inside it is ordered and serene. Limewashed walls scatter light from huge windows on the church's treasures - a beautifully carved fourteenth-century screen, a Queen Anne Royal Arms, a Victorian Hood mausoleum and a collection of oak benches. The beamed roof of the chancel is a rustic marvel.
