This church is beautifully positioned in the grounds of Rockingham Castle commanding views of the Welland Valley.
Dating from the 13th and 14th centuries, the church suffered greatly at the time of the Civil War, when Cromwell's soldiers occupied Rockingham Castle. It was rebuilt in 1650, and the Jacobean pulpit survives. A small bell-tower, with octagonal pyramid roof, and the stained glass windows were added in 1845.
Memorials to the Sondes and Watson families, owners of the Castle, occupy the centuries between.Fiori Musicali are one of the UK’s principal providers of baroque and classical music outside London.
