  • Despite the loss of it's beautiful spire, this is still a magnificent church. Rich in architectural detail both inside and out. Though dominated by the huge old chestnut the churchyard is worth a visit too. The boundary wall reveals damage caused due the Seige of Leicester during the English Civil War. This is 'must see' on any visitors list and a perfect foil to all the modern architecture of the DMU Campus
  • Nice church
