St Wilfrid's Church, Egginton

Recent Photograph of St Wilfrid's Church (Egginton)

Dedicated to St. Wilfrid (AD 634 - 709), one time Bishop of Mercia, the present church dates from the late 13th century, replacing an earlier Norman church, which in turn possibly replaced a Saxon church. The earliest known reference is a mention in the Domesday Book of a church and a priest at Egginton.

The grassy area in front of the church is devoid of gravestones. It is not known if any were once here, but other headstones are in situ either side and at the back of the church.
