An exemplar of Medieval elegance
This elegant Medieval church sits next to the great Baroque stately home of Burley-on-the-Hill built in the 1690s, but the church itself dates from four centuries earlier.
It was largely rebuilt by JL Pearson in 1868-70 but evidence of the Medieval building remains, notably in the tower, the arcades and the fine 15th-century font.
The church contains a beautiful 18th-century memorial to Lady Charlotte Finch, who was a governess to George III’s children and also the inventor of the wooden jigsaw!
There is also a notable clock by Joseph Knibb.
