St Lawrence, Barton on the Heath
St Lawrence Church in Barton on the Heath is within the Archdeaconry of Warwick in the Diocese of Coventry.
This sleepy village, where four counties meet, has a rich history and connections with Robert Dover, who started the Cotswold Games. He is buried here as is the mother of William Wilberforce. Medieval stained glass close to the altar and the mysterious carving of a leaping animal behind the chancel arch are real treasures. The unusual tower is known as a saddleback and was built in the 1100s.
Barton is one of the South Warwickshire Seven Churches.
The church is normally open from 9.30am to 6.30pm or dusk in the winter months
