1887 – Claines Church, Worcester

Architect: Aston Webb


Claines’ original Norman Church was rebuilt in the 15th century. Little of the original remains other than the Norman Font and a Norman Pillar in the tower. A new church was built “around” the old one in stages, much of the old church being used in the tower foundations. The north and south chapels were added in the 16th century. A major restoration, under the architectural design and guidance of Sir Aston Webb took place in 1886 which included removing the galleries and adding the north aisle, porch and vestry.
