The church at Clifton Campville: lordship and community 12th and early 13th centuries
Hugh and Richard’s church: east window of chancel in Decorated style
Hugh and Richard’s church: east window
of chancel in Decorated style
late 14th century
The easternmost bay of the chancel, seen here, was added during the time of Hugh de
Hopwas and Richard de Stafford
, and the impressive east window was included in that phase of building.
The window on the side wall,
to the left
, is a later window inserted in the 15th century.

during this period
, the tower and spire were built, probably after 1370.
The spire is a dramatic feature of the church which is visible from miles around. [see Fig. 13] It can be seen from Lichfield, where Hugh was a leading member of the Cathedral Chapter and where he owned houses in the Close.
The existence of a deer park could be a further sign of Hugh’s status, or perhaps of his aspiration. To the north-west of the village there is an area where eight out ten field names include the word ‘park’, for example,
, Upper Park, and Wilkins Park.
The area is
small for a manorial deer park
, but its size and location are consistent with a clerical deer park. If not established by Hugh, then it would presumably have been set up by one of his predecessors.
