Notes about this historic site

1 In December 2009 trenching for utilities trenching was observed in the Northern tip of the graveyard, no graves where found but occasional fragments of human bone where found.

2 In December 1968 the ‘high’ churchyard wall was removed by Warwickshire County Council as part of a road widening project carried out on the corner of Church Street and Main Street. The church gave the county the land required in return for building the footpath and new wall. The bricks in the old wall matched those of an earlier south porch from the church.
