Stockingford St Paul


The Parish

Stockingford is a chapelry in the greater parish of Nuneaton, it lies about one and a half miles to the west of Nuneaton town centre and today is little more than a suburb of the town. Stockingford sits just north of the B4112 road which runs westwards from Nuneaton towards Coleshill, it is contiguous with Nuneaton with no gap in properties to distinguish it as a separate village. At the time of this transcript the residents of Stockingford would have been engaged principally in either mining of the local coal or in arable agriculture. The parish is drained by a small tributary of the River Anker, this leads eventually northwards to join the Tame and thence the Trent before reaching the North Sea through the Humber Estuary. Stockingford is sited at around 120 metres above the sea in gently rolling countryside. The chapelry was just a small part of Nuneaton parish and was not separately enumerated for acreage or population. There is no mention of Stockingford in Domesday Book.

The Church

St Paul's church stands on the western side of Church Road which runs northwards from the B4112. The church is relatively modern having been built in 1822/3. The church uses a Georgian style and is built almost entirely with brick. The building clearly has little architectural merit as Pevsner dismisses it in a handful of lines. St Paul's stands behind a low brick wall backed by a row of trees, the main entrance being at the northern end granted by a pair of metal gates. There are a number of trees around which somewhat restrict the angles available for photography.
