Allestree, St Edmund

Allestree, St Edmund

Welcome to St Edmund, Allestree, a Norman church renovated by the Victorians.

The church's doorway and the lower part of the tower are Norman in origin. The tower was built around 1200AD. There are vertical grooves in the tower buttress reputedly made by archers sharpening their arrows.

Outside is a war memorial and three war graves in the churchyard. The yew tree in the churchyard is over 800 years old, and named 'Adelard's Tree' from which the village probably got its name.

Please note that parking is available on the road.
