Snitterfield is a large rural village near the town of Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire.
The building of the church was begun towards the end of the 13th Century and continued for more than 150 years. The interior of the church was much changed by the Victorians in the mid 19th century.
The church has close associations with the family of William Shakespeare. His grandfather worshipped here and his father John baptised here. Richard Jago the poet became vicar here in 1754 and is buried under the centre aisle.
