From the Church website :-
The charming little chapel of St. Giles, Heightington was built in the early 13th century. The earliest record of 1325 shows it as being a Chapel of Ease and it is possible that King John, who was known to have enjoyed hunting in the Wyre Forest, could have come here to pray.

In the l8th century the building was shortened by 20 feet and a gallery added to create extra room.The 19th century brick porch has a l7th century boarded door which leads to a single nave and chancel.
