One of Leicestershire’s largest churches, Kegworth stands close to the border with both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire in the Soar Valley.
A Norman structure stood here, but only a small section of wall at the foot of the tower has survived from this period. Everything else is 14th Century including the tower and spire. Essentially the church that stands here today is the same one that stood here in 1387.
The only large change was in the 15th Century when the nave walls were raised and a new roof added, otherwise even the restoration in the 1860s barely altered the structure and so we have one of the better preserved medieval churches in this part of the country.Photo - Andrew J. Müller
