Childerley, the surviving redbrick wing of a celebrated Elizabethan House, where Charles I was once held under house arrest, sits in a famous garden that has been created by the present owner, and is adjacent to one of the longest timber-framed barns in England.
Childerley is a valued part of our Parish and holds a very special place in our hearts. The farm’s owner Chloe Jenkins generously makes available the lovely private Chapel for occasional services. Once a year we also hold an Open Air Service and Picnic in the grounds, joining together with other local churches.
