St John the Baptist Harringworth

Michael McQuade from the Cathedral Walking Group organises walks around the local churches and villages. He recently contacted us regarding an interesting trip to St John the Baptist at Harringworth. “I visited St John the Baptist Church at Harringworth in Rutland yesterday and was amazed at what I found. I picked up a leaflet in the church and used that together with the photographs that I took to put together a document that I...

Restart Spring 2018

After a hiatus of three years we are going to be visiting churches again from this spring. The reason for the three year gap was to concentrate on the business side which has now settled down and allows us more time to continue this project. We do have around ten churches we completed several years ago which we need to add and these will start appearing in next few weeks. We are looking forward in visiting the remaining churches as...

Stanford upon Avon St Nicholas

Now before all the comments start I know this church is actually in Northamptonshire. But as it is only 500ft from the Leicestershire border and it is closely tied with Stanford Hall in Leicestershire (near Lutterworth) it seems rather churlish to ignore it. It is also a marvellous church and well worth visiting and it is in Leicester Diocese. In Simon Jenkins “England’s Thousand Best Churches” he mentions the stained glass, the 16th...

We hope to be at one or two of the events this coming week. The picture in the ‘header’ is from Sutton Cheney church the last...
