Offenham

 

Anglican: SS Mary and Milburgh


Only the 15th century tower remains of the medieval church. The rest was rebuilt in 1861/62 by Frederick Preedy who was born in the village. All the interior is Preedy's work and he also designed and made all the stained glass. The church is usually open during daylight hours. (Ref A Church Near You, May 2015.)
