St.Peter and St.Paul Church, Long Compton, Warwickshire, UK

St Peter and St Paul dates mainly from the 13th century. Attached to the south side of the chancel is a small 15th century chantry chapel and the nave roof is supported by corbel heads carved in a variety of fascinating shapes. The most unusual is a woman wearing a full horned head-dress.

Another fascinating feature of the church is the Lychgate which was built at the entrance to the churchyard so that funeral corteges could shelter from bad weather. It consists of a 17th century half-timbered brick and thatched cottage which was originally the end of a complete row. The other cottages were destroyed by fire and only this one survived. It was once a shop and later a private residence, but was given to the church in 1964.
