A distinguished example of Anglo-Norman building in Warwickshire, Berkswell church is noted for its double crypt, encouraging suggestions that it originated as an Anglo-Saxon minster and focus for a pre-Conquest saint’s cult. However, as John Hunt discusses, this parish church’s development sits more persuasively in the mid and later-twelfth century.
