St Nicholas' Church, Ettington Park, Ettington - Stratford-on-Avon

The chapel of St Nicholas was built in the C13 to service the village of Ettington some two miles away. However, the building was superceded by a better located church in 1798 and is now partially ruinous. It is the family mausoleum of the Shirley family. The church has suffered from natural erosion and other threats including birds nesting in the tower, structural decay of standing masonry and other issues associated with rainwater goods and cementitious repairs. The owners are in discussions with Historic England about repairs and management options.
