"... The church of Warwick is remarkable for its round east end with round narrow niches on the outside 10 feet 8 inches high and 17 inches wide, reaching almost to the ground, and in two or three a small window. The whole church is built of hewn stone 70 feet long, but formerly reached further west, there being at that end a good round arch filled up. In the grant to St. Mary's abbey it is called a chapel. ..."
