The two-arched packhorse bridge at Scredington (TF 097409), constructed in c1250, now carries a footpath over a village stream.

Close by are the remains of a moat and the extensive site of a medieval manor.

This 2-arched medieval bridge of c.1250 over the village stream is one of few bridges of this period in the county.

It has been reinforced rather crudely with modern concrete.

The tall needle spire of St Andrew's, at the south-west corner, is a distinctive and unusual feature.  It dates from 1869.

A striking feature of St Andrews is the octagonal south-west tower with its tall needle spire. Like much of the building, it dates from 1869.

The north aisle, however, and the three-bay arcade are 15th century.
