St. Nicholas

Originally built in the 12th century. Rebuilt in the 13th century but retaining some original features that survive to this day. The church underwent many alterations down the centuries. A spire was added in the early 15th century, on which the artillery of King Charles the First scored a direct hit 1643 in the siege of Gloucester during the English Civil War. It was declared redundant in 1971 when the parish was merged with St. Mary de Lode and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The grade I-listed church has a distinct lean.
