Swineshead, Bedford

St Nicholas' church, Swineshead (2)

Uploader's Comments

This church was largely built between 1330 and 1340. The clearstory to the south aisle was added slightly later in C15. The first documentary evidence of a church at Swineshead dates to 1279 when the Advowson belonged to Ralph de Swineshead. This church must have replaced an earlier one.
