Wootton Wawen

St Peterís is the oldest church in Warwickshire, with a Saxon tower and crossing dating back to around 900.

There is no trace of the Saxon monastery, but earthworks mark the site of a later Norman Priory. The church includes mediaeval glass and wall painting, and some magnificent brasses, tombs and memorials.

A favourite with visitors to Stratford-upon-Avon, the church has a colourful exhibition which follows the fascinating story of a monastery and manor set in the Forest of Arden.


Introducing our Church Trail which is suitable for all ages 9 - 90 years.  You may not be a regular churchgoer, but you will enjoy the history of our church.  If you have an hour to spare, especially during school holidays this is something families can do together as the information and answers allow parents to enthuse and stimulate the young.  You are in control of how much detail you impart, depending on the ages of your youngsters.  The church is open all day - enjoy!
