The church of the Catesby family, whose manor is famous for the Gunpowder Plot Room where the conspirators formulated their plan, and where Robert Catesby and Thomas Percy were supposedly felled by a single shot here.
Today much of the local land and buildings are still in Eden family ownership. All that survives of the 16/17th mansion is a pair of stranded gate piers on the road that leads to the church into the motorway valley.
The restoration of the church in the mid 19th century brought with it the handsome low box pews and the stained glass in the chancel by Heaton, Butler and Bayne. Here you will also find wall monuments to both the Clerke and Eadon families.
