HISTORY & ARCHITECTURE
This Church is 12th century in origin. In c.1189 King Richard I granted the manor and Church to the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem at Dinmore. The Church was lengthened and the tower added in the 13th century. Some of this fabric, such as the north nave doorway and the base section of the tower, has survived by being incorporated into the 19th century restoration work. The original dedication may have been to Saint Thomas. The beautiful stained-glass includes, from the 14th century, Saints Peter, Paul, Edmund the king, Catherine and Stephen, and a group depicting the Massacre of the Innocents; from the 15th century the stained-glass is of the Virgin and Child. Other fragments are 17th century as is the panelling. The partly Jacobean pulpit and other woodwork were 19th century gifts. The principal monuments are of the Clive family, descendants of Clive of India, who lived at Whitfield Court.
