Baxterley Church

The original church was built in the later part of the 12th C. and was much smaller than the extended building that exists today with its beautiful, Victorian, stained-glass windows.

The Church attracts many visitors and is well known for its abundance of spring flowers throughout the churchyard and its association with Hugh Latimer who was a leading religious scholar during the reign of Henry VIII.

The church has a rich history and unlike most other churches of this age, is not associated with any particular saint or martyr.

Baxterley Church dates from around 1200 and like many Parish Churches evolved over many centuries.

Major additions and changes in Victorian times give the Church much of it’s current character.
