Oldberrow (Warwickshire)


Anglican: St Mary

The simple, small building was rebuilt in 1875 on the site of a medieval church.  Many historic features have been reset, including a magnificent ancient font.

Oldberrow was transferred to Warwickshire in 1896 and the parish transferred to the Diocese of Coventry in 1918. It is included on this website for historical purposes. St Mary’s is usually open during daylight hours.
