Summary Description

Dunton Bassett is a rural village situated about 10 miles SSW of Leicester of 320 dwellings with a population of about 750. It is thought that a church on the site has been used for worship from early in the 13th century as evidenced by the record of vicars since 1209. A churchyard surrounds the church where many of the graves are over a century old; the oldest graves are dated 1671 and 1681. An extension to the churchyard, consecrated in 1960, is still used for present day burials.

Visiting and Facilities

The church is open for worship.
