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.

Glentworth • St Michael

St Michael’s church is a superb late 11th century church with a stained glass window by Charles Kempe in the Saxon tower. It has a fine marble tomb of Sir Christopher Wray, Chief Justice of England during Elizabeth I’s reign, with his wife and children and is an Elizabethan gem. Three of his children played leading roles in the spread of puritan ideas between 1600 and 1620 and were associated with the Mayflower Pilgrims that sailed to America from Boston.

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.
