St Peter in the Rushes


From the stonework of St Peter in the Rushes and an old chapel in the village a new church, All Saints, was built nearer to the village centre. The old church was larger than the new one and it would be reasonable to conclude that there was sufficient stonework available for building the new church from these two sources.

Lias, a fine grained grey limestone from the Lower Jurassic geological period, forms the main blockwork of the new church. The quoins used for the cornerstones of the building are sandstone possibly from Kingsmill, Castle Donnington. These stones have been neatly dressed.
