In September 2005 we spent a very pleasant week staying in Church cottage, next door to the church. Here is a view from churchyard to the west of the building. The perfectly clipped yew cones make a lovely compliment to the path from the tower. According to the National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) the church was at that time thatched.
This church, being in the hamlet of Coclesworth, was in fact a chapel of ease to the former St Peter's Church. However as the hamlet grew, St Peter's fell into disuse and Eriswell relocated at this end of the village.
Here is the view of the east end from the road. What is now the south aisle is in fact the 3th century church, built on the site of the normal original. The present nave, tower and chancel were built 150 years later.
And a final view from the approach to Church Cottage showing the south side. The low window (second to the east of the south door) looks rather unusual and in fact contains fragments of medieval glass at its centre.
