The Church of St Peter Ad Vincula, Hampton Lucy
The Domesday Survey recorded the presence of a mediæval church on this site in 1086 but the current St Peter's Church is comparatively more modern, having been built in 1822. The chancel, porch and apsidal sanctuary were added in 1858 by Sir Gilbert Scott.

Described by Pevsner as ‘a very good example of early 19th century church architecture, the richness of which is due to the generosity of funding’, the building has been described as “arguably the most outstanding 19th century church in the county” (LinkExternal link Peter Bolton, Warwickshire C19 Churches).

It is a Grade I Listed Building (English Heritage Building ID:482484 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
