Hainton • St Mary

An estate church of Anglo-Saxon origins, rebuilt in the 13th and 14th centuries and sympathetically restored in the 19th century. The spire was suggested by Capability Brown when he redesigned the park. Inside, there is a “nationally important” series of monuments to the Heneage Family, from a brass of 1435 to a modern memorial of 1954, providing an illustrated history of monumental styles. They are unusual because of the time span for one family. Light refreshments available throughout the day.

Kirkby cum Osgodby • St Andrew




Photograph by Richard Croft, source.

St Andrew’s church serves both Kirkby and the adjoining village of Osgodby which has never had an Anglican church of its own. It was built by 1160 and the tower and chancel are both 13th century. The nave was rebuilt in the 19th and 20th century. An interesting feature is the East window which is crooked on one side. No-one knows why.
