Proud to be associated with the Tutbury Parade, through the village to the Church for the best Remembrance Day Service I have attended.

We first visited to do a rece for a wedding that we were to attend and were made so welcome. The coffee and cake were of excellent quality and delightful. I am disabled and use a wheelchair we were made welcome and access was very good with very obliging congregation. Many thanks and kind regards

The Priory Church is a great example of Norman architecture. The west door is amazing. The church is not usually open but there was a meeting so I slipped in to take a look. Whilst it was nice, I was a bit disappointed. (I am a fan of elaborate Tudor tombs and didn't see any.) The war memorial was interesting.

"A Real Gem" is a review of this beautiful church which I have visited in April 2012. By mistake it appeared as being in a different location. Sorry. I do not know what happened. It is one of the most beautiful churches in England and it has a charming little garden at the back. Warwick is also a wonderful medieval... More

I have visited the church many times and always find it such a peaceful place. The main door way is such a gem of a feature and worth spending time looking at it. I think it is only opened for special occasions such as weddings. I have been to concerts several times and the acoustics are superb for all sorts... More
