Stonton Wyville St Denys


The Parish

The parish of Stonton Wyville lies in southeastern Leicestershire not too far from its border with neighbouring Northamptonshire. Stonton Wyville is located about 5 miles north of Market Harborough and sits about 2 miles east of the B6047 that connects Market Harborough with Melton Mowbray. There is very little to Stonton Wyville, just a small grouping of farms and cottages on a dead-end road huddled around the church. Stonton Wyville's economy would have been almost totally based on farming with a mixed regime in place. Stonton Wyville is drained by the headwaters of the River Welland which heads off eastwards through Stamford & Spalding to reach the North Sea through The Wash. Stonton Wyville is sited at around 80 metres above the sea in classic hunting countryside, rolling and populated with hedges, local heights, whilst not extreme, rise to around 150 metres within a couple of miles. Stonton Wyville parish was fairly typically sized for this part of the county, it covered just over 1,200 acres and would have supported around 100 parishioners. In Domesday times Stonton Wyville was shared between Hugh de Grandmesnil with a small holding with Countess Judith, collectively the parish offered 6 ploughs, the usual meadows pastures and woodland but at that time held two mills.

The Church

St Denys' church sits on the western side of the grouping of properties that form the notional centre of Stonton Wyville. The church has its origins in the 13th century albeit thorough restorations in Victorian and more modern times have largely rebuilt the church. From the 13th century Pevsner notes side windows in the chancel, lights in the clerestory and internally the remains of partially dismantled aisle to the southern arcade showing Early English Gothic features. Much else was rebuilt in 1838, 1863, 1869 or indeed 1956 when the church was substantially rebuilt forming today's building. At a small crossroads the church sits in the northwestern segment behind post and rail fencing, a paved path runs from metal gates to the church. There are quite a few trees around the churchyard and these do somewhat restrict the angles for photography.
