Our Churches:

Breedon on the Hill
Breedon Priory Church: an historic church situated on top of Breedon Hill, home to some of the oldest anglo-saxon stone carvings and the famous Breedon Angel. We are a vibrant, living Anglican church in the 21st Century.

Isley Walton
All Saints’ Church: hidden away from general view, it bears the arms of Christ’s College, Cambridge, joint patrons of the living of Isley Walton

Staunton Harold
The Ferrers Chapel of the Holy Trinity: set in the grounds of Staunton Harold Hall, it was one the few places of worship built during the time of Oliver Cromwell.

St Matthew’s Church: a village church dating back to the 12th century. To the consternation of some passers-by, its stone walls slope outwards, causing some to ring the council, convinced they are about to collapse!


Do come and visit us and if you have any question please feel free to contact us and find out more.
