Typical rolling countryside around Lapworth.

The church at the top of this hill is St Mary the Virgin, Lapworth.

St Mary the Virgin, Lapworth.

In Lapworth Church the stonework and polished wood are much in evidence, like Berkswell, but Lapworth has a much lighter feeling and less gravitas, perhaps befitting its dedication to St Mary.

The table-top tomb beside the church porchway is the tomb of Robert Catesby, mastermind behind the Gunpowder Plot.
