Caption: Holy Trinity Church, Morton Bagot, Warwickshire.
Description: This small medieval church with its distinctive timber-framed bell turret is sited close to thin outcrops of Arden Sandstone in the Triassic, Mercia Mudstone Group. This pale sandstone, together with grey Blue Lias limestone, was used for most of the walling. Morton Bagot Church was constructed using locally quarried blocks of Blue Lias limestone (Lower Jurassic) and Arden Sandstone (Upper Triassic). The replacement window mouldings are of red sandstone probably derived from quarries in the Triassic Sherwood Sandstone Group succession. The Arden Sandstone is a locally developed greenish-grey sandstone interval in the upper part of the dominantly red mudstone of the Mercia Mudstone Group. Although of limited thickness and extent it was an important local source of building stone widely used in churches in the area.
