The church in Whittington stands within the boundaries of a motte and bailey castle. The church seems to have been constructed around 1200, which implies the castle was out of use by this period. It is just possible that if the castle was constructed with any stonework that these stones formed part of the building materials for the first church.
The oldest section of the church which still stands today is the tower, which is 15th Century. The majority of the church was heavily restored by the Victorians around 1875 and doesn’t overall have a look of any great antiquity.
