St Mary's church near Alderminster in Warwickshire used to be surrounded by the village of Whitchurch. The village was cleared by the 16th century for sheep farming but the church remains in use, despite its splendid near-isolation. A look on Google maps or similar service shows clearly the lumps and bumps in surrounding fields (still with sheep) marking where the village was. The church can trace its history back to circa 908AD and the windows shown on the side wall of the church reputedly came from Evesham Abbey.
