St. Mary`s Church (Coleorton)

St. Mary`s Church is the parish church of the Leicestershire village of Coleorton.

It stands in the grounds of Coleorton Hall, which was built for Sir George Beaumont in the early 19th century.

St. Mary`s is a basically mediaeval church, with a lovely spire, but was much restored in the 1950s by H. I. Stevens of Derby.

There is some stained glass dating from around 1500, brought back from Rouen by Sir George Beaumont.

An alabaster monument to Sir Thomas Beaumont dates from 1607.
