Project Description

The Priory Church of St Mary and St Hardulph, Breedon-on-the-Hill, dominates this part of Leicestershire and South Derbyshire. It is a landmark visible from miles away in neighbouring counties. Perched atop a dramatic quarry cliff, it looks to be in a truly precarious position.

The hill top has been occupied since the Iron Age, and the church we see today dates back to Saxon times.
