A beautiful old English church in middle of a field of sheep surrounded by lakes and nearby Fawsley Hall. Enjoyable walks in surrounding grounds of Fawsley Park. Perfect for a picnic on a summers day.

Walked to church from Fawsley Hall hotel. It was very quaint and well preserved. Surrounded by lovely countryside with sheep in fields.
