1843 Zinc Lithograph Ozleworth Church Mayo Relton Norman Cemetery England RES1

145719_RES1_062

This is an original 1843 monochrome zinc lithograph of the Ozleworth Church of Gloucestershire, England. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, and is thought to have been built in 1131. The church has an unusual hexagonal tower, located between the chancel and nave. The church is no longer active, and is groomed by the Churches Conversation Trust. Due to the fact that the church stands within a circular churchyard, it is thought that an earlier church had been built on the site, possibly dating before the Christian era.

Please see additional images and note that included with this listing is a second zinc lithograph depicting the interior of the church, as well as a 2 page (1 page, double-sided) supplement describing the history and features of the structure.
