Hainton • St Mary

Hainton St Mary - Photo by David Wright (source)
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.

Our church is a little gem because it has several unique features. It has a stone exterior and a warm brick interior typical of James Fowler (rebuilt in 1866). The tower was rebuilt in 1894. Our pending tower restoration and repair works due to commence early 2022 should be completed before the festival so that you can join us in our celebrations and enjoy a warm welcome and light refreshments in our lovely church. Cake stall and book stall.

The church and family mausoleum is believed to have been designed by Lancelot “Capability” Brown – built c1775 whilst working for Richard 4th Earl Scarborough. Brown designed several churches (including Compton Verney in Warwickshire and Combe D’Abitot in Worcestershire), whilst carrying out his landscape commissions on estates around the country. The church is a wonderful example of the classical style he used.

Pilham • All Saints



Pilham - Copyright Churches Festival - Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity
Described as one of the smallest churches in England with ‘everything’ in it, Pilham has undergone internal redecoration and externally a new roof, following the lead theft of 2019. A recent discover of a pen and ink drawing of 1789 confirms a longheld belief that the church door was originally on the south side and research continues into when the change to its current position took place and why.

Knaith • St Mary


St Mary's Knaith, photograph by Eddy Overson
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - ADDITIONAL TO BROCHURE: On Sunday May 15th, from approximately 1pm to 1:30pm, there will be a Christening in the church, so it will be unavailable to festival visitors for this short time. An external guided walk and tour will be offered to visitors for the duration of the Christening. Apologies for any inconvenience. 

Described as “odd, but delightful with stunning views of the River Trent”, St Mary’s curious appearance reflects an intriguing and calamitous history. The church dates from c1330 and has interesting features including a superb Gothic font, a fine Jacobean pulpit complete with tester, medieval pew ends, and an unusual altar Baldacchino among many other amazing artefacts. A free guided tour is available with tales of naughty nuns, civil war intrigue and fabulous fortunes won, lost and given away.





St Mary’s English Decorated period Gothic font has been described thus:
“This very splendid font is we think altogether the handsomest we ever saw…”

Blyton • St Martin

Photo: Ashley Taylor, Push Creativity*
Blyton church has an impressive display of the flags of the allies in WWI. They hang above arcades 6 and 7 centuries old. The chancel, although much rebuilt last century, has its original East window of about 1300, its old piscina and aumbry and a 15th century window and part of the old rood beam is still over the arch. The font, with carved panels and embattled top, is a handsome example of 15th century craftsmanship.
