Little Packington St Bartholomew


The Parish

The parish of Little Packington lies in north central Warwickshire. Little Packington is located about 9 miles west of the city of Coventry. There is not much to Little Packington, a mere collection of cottages and farms. Today's Little Packington is an oasis of calm amid the paraphernalia of modern transport, to its west runs the modern M42, to its north the equally modern M6, to the south the dualled A45 and through the parish runs the dualled A452, less than two miles west is Birmingham International Airport. At the time of this transcript Little Packington would have been a rural and agricultural hamlet on the west banks of the River Blyth. The Blyth drains the parish northwards joining the Tame and then Trent to eventually reach the North Sea through the Humber estuary. Little Packington is sited at around 90 metres above the sea, the land rises gently from the river valley only for 10 or 20 metres or so. By Warwickshire standards Little Packington parish was one of the smaller, it covered just under 1,000 acres and would have supported around 150 parishioners. In Domesday times Little Packington was not specifically enumerated, being combined with Great Packington.

The Church

St Bartholomew's church stands just east of Packington Lane, set back behind a former farm now a solicitor's premises and accessed by a short driveway leading to a parking area. The church owes much to the Victorians being especially picturesque in their favoured style. Pevsner, however, is quick to point out features that indicate a much older building. The doorways show features of the Transitional style on the late 13th century as does the windows of the chancel which are, however, reused. The timber-work in the turret is also mediaeval albeit the remainder is 19th century. The church stands in a pleasant churchyard behind a wicket fence and the churchyard is relatively open to photography.
