Getting here

Oxenton Church contains fascinating wall murals, some overlaid on earlier work. Specialist conservation work has revealed many glimpses but no complete pictures.
A mortuary chapel was added to the north of the building for Edward Law, who was created 1st Earl of Ellenborough following a term as Governor-General of India. He was the architect of the model of British rule in India which was instituted after the Mutiny. The chapel is completely sealed, but re-roofing works in 2005 gave a rare glimpse of its contents.
The church stands within a village surrounded by working farms, and is supported by residents from all three villages of the parish. The church hall (formerly the village school) is now administered as a community asset.
