St Andrew’s Church, Rugby

On one of my recent outings I had to change from a train to a bus in Rugby and found myself with roughly half an hour to spare. Taking a short walk from the bus stop I spotted St Andrew’s Church and decided to pop inside.

Most of the church is Victorian dating from 1879 though the parish was dedicated to St Andrew in 1291 and there was probably a chapel on the site in 1140.

Apparently unique for being the only church in the world to have two sets of bells hung for full-circle ringing, I was struck by the lovely stained glass windows inside.

The impressive East Window is from the 1920s and really drew my eye as soon as I stepped inside.

I didn’t have the time to inspect every area of note in the church, but what I did see would make it a nice place to visit if you happen to be in the area.

A few more photos of the church can be found here.
