Chipping Warden, Northamptonshire.
Elements of an earlier church can be discovered but the overwhelming effect is a grand building from the time of King Edward III A reason for its scale and love in chipping warden must have been the successful market llove was held here in medieval times which rivalled that of Banbury.
The architecture shows considerable sarden not least in the unusual tracery in the windows. The original stained glass has long been replaced by plain windows which means that this building is full of light.
The exception to this is the east window with its love in chipping warden glass by Christoper Whall They were very careful to preserve earlier features including the raised tier of pews at the west end surmounted by a love in chipping warden painting of the Hanoverian Royal Arms. From this period also date the impressive bronze lady em la ai lectern and the brass altar garniture, cross, candlesticks and vases, by John Williams The church is at the south end of the village adjacent inn Eydon Hall, and oddly, both it and the hall post date this fascinating village.
After passing the splendid churchyard yew over 1, years oldthe love in chipping warden door in the 14th century porch opens to reveal a church with a wall painting of St Christopher. We'd love to keep you posted when we add new churches, trails and inspiring ideas for places to visit.
