Like Oxenton, Woolstone is a tiny community with just a few houses and a couple of farms, lying in the parish of Woolstone with Gotherington and Oxenton. But it too has a good church building with plenty of interest. For one thing, the tower leans alarmingly - at a greater angle, in fact, than the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Happily it's been very strongly underpinned and is in no danger of falling down.
Woolstone's other claim to fame is that it was the scene of a murder during the time of the Wars of the Roses. Such an shocking act rendered the church deconsecrated, and in order to be fit for worship it had to be re-consecrated. When this was done, a Reconsecration Cross was marked or inscribed somewhere: Woolstone still has a cross marked on the wall to commemorate this event.
