Twycross Church
Twycross Church
St James's Church is substantially of 14th century origin. Major alterations were carried out in 1840, elongating the north aisle to accommodate the Curzon family and their staff from Gopsall Hall; the south porch also dates from this time. The stained glass in the east window is notable; it is said that it was originally in the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris and came to Twycross by way of William IV and Earl Howe of Gopsall Hall. The church is nowadays part of the delightfully named Sheepy Benefice.
