For details of this church on our "Stained Glass of Buckinghamshire Churches" website, please click here


Notes on Stained Glass:10 of the church's 11 windows have a geometric pattern with horizontal bands of pale green diamonds. We show 4 as examples, and assume that they were all fitted during the 1880s restoration.

Introduction to Church:During the 13th and 14th Centuries Hoggeston church expanded around the previous 12th century Norman church. Around the end of the 15th Century, the church was given a distinctive timber belfry. William White restored the church in the early 1880s, and it now seems a large church for a very small village.
