Inside SP2872 : St Nicholas' Church.

The earliest written evidence for the church of St Nicholas is its appearance in Pope Nicholas IV's taxation roll of 1291. The Prior and Priory of Kenilworth were its patrons until the Dissolution, when it passed to the Crown.

Nothing remains apparent from the 13th century building, and the present church is basically "perpendicular" of the middle or late 14th century. It is built in the same red, local sandstone as the abbey.

The Church is a Grade I listed building (LinkExternal link - British Listed Buildings)
