Whitton, St Mary the Virgin
St Mary the Virgin
Access via steps from a sunken lane. Much of the structure dates from the twelth century - a medieval preaching cross with its 'tabernacle' or 'aumbrey' stands in the churchyard amongst some 200 recorded plant species. A visit in the spring is a must to view the wonderful array of wild flowers, particularly daffodils. The chancel, added in 1879, has a masterpiece stained glass window by Burne Jones and William Morris.
