Stainfield, St Andrew

Unique Queen Anne church in picturesque parkland on the Viking Way. The church was reconsecrated in 1711; the building is situated on the site of a Benedictine nunnery that was dissolved in Tudor times. Sir Christopher Wren is reputed to have designed the building, which lays north-south to form part of the vista in the park. The church is home to the magnificent 18th century Tyrwhitt Tapestries, conserved in 2002 by Sheila Landi at Burghley House.  The local legend of the Wild man of Stainfield is also featured, alongside displays relating to the nunnery and village history. Guide book available.   

The Tyrwhitt Tapestries dating from 1711 permanently displayed in church
