St Mary's Church and churchyard, Warwick
St Mary's Church and churchyard, Warwick
A view from the southeast. The mediaeval church, in scale like a small cathedral, was largely destroyed by the Great Fire of Warwick in 1694. The rebuilding was completed in 1704, early in reign of Queen Anne, who contributed 1,000 to the cost. Pevsner devotes pages to the church and its contents. The Beauchamp Chapel and the crypt, mediaeval survivors of the fire, should not be overlooked. In the centre of the photo is a common churchyard tree, the Irish yew, here in its golden-leaved form (Taxus baccata 'Fastigiata Aurea'). A fastigiate tree is one whose branches tend to be upright-growing and closely-packed, as though in bundles.
