A light-filled church in rolling countryside

This cruciform church is set in rolling country, on the edge of parkland and dates mainly from around 1800.

Clear glass fills most of its excellent pointed cast iron windows, made in the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in the Severn Gorge, some miles south.

The north transept is a survival from an earlier church which contains a remarkable 17th-century screen and some early 19th-century heraldic glass, all associated with the Kilmorey family.

Only the chancel and transepts are in the care of the Trust, with the tower and nave remaining in use by the parish.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
