STEWKLEY CHURCH

Buckinghamshire

Stewkley Church, Buckinghamshire

St. Michael’s Church in Stewkley is the best example of Norman architecture surviving in Buckinghamshire. It seems probable that it was built in the mid-1100s on the orders of Geoffrey de Clinton, who was granted the land at that time.

Very little has changed beyond the addition of a porch in 1860, and the original distinctive chevron decorations still exist both inside and outside giving it a very clear Norman appearance. A vestry was added to 1910, but aside from this Stewkley is a magnificent example of an unspoilt early Norman church building and certainly worth seeking out.
