Details

Birdingbury - Unusual church
This small village is recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Derbinggerie'. It was given to the Benedictine Monks by Leofric, Earl of Mercia, when he founded the Coventry Monastery.

Birdingbury Hall is an interesting Jacobean house. And the parish church has the most unusual design - the west front is Georgian but the rest of the building dates from 1873. Its dome is a copy of the dome of St Paul's Cathedral. Inside the church there is an 18th century inlaid pulpit and box pews.

Henry Homer, the accomplished scholar and pioneer of agricultural reform, was born at the Rectory.

Birdingbury Country festival is held here every year.
