Late in the 15th century the nave and chancel were raised, the church was last restored and re-roofed by Sir Gilbert Scott in 1876. The memorial stained glass is dedicated to Charles Rowland Palmer-Morewood High Sheriff of Warwickshire (1881). The window itself is 15th century inserted into a 14th century recess.

Effigy - Ladbroke Sedillia - Ladbroke

The effigy is thought to be that of Roger de Paveley the second rector of Ladbroke (1298-1303) but is probably later. It was discovered under the chancel during restoration in 1876. The sedilia with three seats, has moulded cinquefoil ogee heads with crockets, poppy-head finials and head-stops over the moulded mullions dividing the seats; except for the two mullions it is a modern restoration.
