St Luke's Church

Our Church

The church of St Luke was built in the 13th (tower) and 14th centuries (main building) and is one of the few surviving churches in England with a saddleback tower. It is likely that there was an earlier church on the same site. The design of the church is similar to the one in Maidford, approximately four miles to the west, and the same travelling stonemasons probably worked on both buildings.

There is a monument inside the church which consists of an oak effigy of a slender cross-legged Knight which may be Sir John de Pateshull who died c1350. There is also a tomb chest with ten ogee-headed panels containing shields.

More detail about the Church can be found on the British Listed Buildings web site.
