These cows were clearly keen to have their picture taken as they came running up almost as soon as the camera appeared. Fortunately I managed to get my picture of the church first! LinkExternal link
St Margaret's Church, Owthorpe
The church was a rebuilt by the local landowner, Colonel Robert Hutchison, around the middle of the 17th century. Hutchison was the Governor of Nottingham Castle during the Civil War, and built himself a house at Owthorpe. The church replaced an earlier, larger church, from which Hutchison used material. The sculpture over the west door is one of the few items remaining. The official listing text places the date of the church at 1707, but this is clearly incorrect as Hutchison's new church was commented on as early as 1677, and he had died before the end of the century. The church is Listed Grade I, and many of the early gravestones in the churchyard are also listed, Grade II.
