Aston Somerville

 

Anglican: St Mary

This Grade I Listed limestone church has Norman origins, the chancel and tower are probably 13th century. There is work from later periods and it was restored by C Ford Whitcombe in 1908. At the rear of the nave there is the effigy of a knight, thought to be Sir John Somerville and dating from the 13th century.   (Diocese of Gloucester, Aston Somerville was transferred from Gloucestershire in 1931.)
