The church is known as The Saxon Sanctuary.
At first the visitor may think the grass has just been left untended. But inside the church, the visitor will find details of a scheme to encourage grasses and wild flowers, which is operating is in selected churchyards in Warwickshire. The grass is cut at particular times of year (haymaking) to help the flowers.
The tomb of Francis Smith, 1604.
Near to the church is Wootton Hall, built in 1637, and home to various Catholic families, principally the Carington family.
Hollyhocks growing outside people's homes.
The Bulls Head, at Wootton Wawen.
These ladies were on a "canal boat holiday" touring through Warwickshire, with the narrow boat as a floating hotel. Their boat had stopped overnight at moorings, and they had just visited the Saxon Church, and were now on their leisurely way through the Arden countryside in the direction of Stratford.
Here, the Alne flows over a weir at Wooton Wawen.
