The church today
In 1953 an appeal was launched by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Geoffrey Fisher and the Pilgrim Trust to restore the church, which had fallen into disrepair during the Second World War. The following year the 12th Earl Ferrers gave the building to the National Trust.
Being a private chapel, it is not a parish church in its own right but it lies in the parish of Breedon. Fortnightly services are held for parishioners, estate workers and others, some of whose family backgrounds are linked historically with the Shirley household.
