Warmington is recorded in Domesday Book. Shortly afterwards, the Norman owner, the Earl of Warwick, gave the manor of Warmington to the Benedictine Abbey in Normandy, St.Peter’s at Preaux. Warmington remained in monastic hands, for about 450 years. Monks were sent over from Preaux who built a small Priory which has now disappeared, but the church built under the monks’ supervision, mainly in the early medieval period, remains.
The church stands high above the village, close to the summit of Warmington Hill. The churchyard is entered either by the lych-gate from the main road, or from the village by two long flights of steps. In the older part, and especially near the south porch, are gravestones from the 17th and 18th centuries, including several soldiers from the Civil War
