Wellow Church, Nottinghamshire

This rather modest church in the pretty little village of Wellow was once part of the Estate of Rufford Abbey – indeed it was not until 1974 that most of the village ceased to be part of the Rufford Estate – even though the Abbey is long gone!

The church dates back to around the time of Richard I. A small window in the north wall dates certainly to 1190. Most of the church is from a 14th Century rebuild, including the rather diminutive tower.

Everything was restored by Ewan Christian in 1878 and a second restoration took place in 1968.
