Fenstanton Church, Huntingdonshire

Fenstanton has one of Huntingdonshire’s most attractive and impressive churches. It is mostly 13th-15th Century in date, in common with so many English parish churches. It is faced with Barnack stone and sports a particularly fine spire. Although some Victorian restoration took place here in the 1870s it was largely subtle and does not detract from the ancient look of this church.

Inside the church is a memorial to Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown who owned the Manor House here near to the time of his death, and is buried in the churchyard and remembered by a Capability Brown Trail around the village.

The Millennium Window in the south aisle was added in 2000 and designed by Ian Thompson.
