Artist: Turner, Samuel
View by Samuel Turner, of the Parish Church in Husbands Bosworth. The church was struck by lightening during a storm which took place during the evening on 6th July 1755. Parts of the steeple and spire was badly damaged and the bells were displaced and their frames and wheels shattered. The large hole which was created in the spire measured approximately 12 yards in length and 1 yard in width. It is thought that the church stands on the site of an earlier Saxon building however the earliest part of the church dates from the 12th century and was been built in the Early English and Decorated styles.
