Trip Report Nottinghamshire Churches

Jump to last reply

Over the last couple of years we have visited several churches in Nottinghamshire which I have written up here.
http://wasleys.org.uk/eleanor/churches/england/east_midlands/nottinghamshire/index.html

As a county, Nottingham tends to be ignored by visitors unless they are in search of Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest. It has some nice countryside with places like Clumber Park as well as some very good churches. These include places like Southwell Minster with its superb Norman nave

and the Church of St Mary Magdalene in Newark upon Trent which must be one of the largest parish churches in England.

It also includes tiny churches like St Nicholas in Littleborough with Saxon herringbone stonework in the walls and Saxon chancel arch.

Elston Chapel is also Norman although it has an unspoilt Georgian interior and the remains of wall paintings.

All Saint’s Church in Hawton has the most amazing Easter sepulchre and carved stonework.

Another Easter sepulchre is also found in St Peter’s Church in Sibthorpe.

St Giles’ Church in Holme has beautifully carved medieval pews as well as the splendid tomb of John Barton who built the south aisle specially for it.

St Gregory’s Church in Fledborough Church has some good medieval stained glass.

And finally, All Saint’s Church in Coddington was rebuilt by Bodley in 1865 and decorated by Willaim Morris and Burne Jones.
