St Kenelm's Church in Enstone (photo courtesy of oxfordshirechurches.info)
The earliest church here dates from around 850 AD and the present church has thirteen centuries of history with nine phases of building, rebuilding and change.

There is a beautiful 14th century stone porch with the ceiling divided into eight sections, supported and decorated with carved stone heads, and then you enter the church itself via a Norman doorway with its characteristic carved zig-zag stone mouldings. Almost direclty ahead as you enter is another walled-in Norman doorway and to its left is the Enstone War Memorial window of pre-Raphaelite stained glass, possibly by William Morris's company.

In the south chapel is a charming rustic tomb showing Stevens Wisdom kneeling befor his own memorial telling him that he died in 1633!
