In a quiet backwater close to Telford

This intriguing church is set in a quiet location only a mile away from central Telford.

The chancel is made from local sandstone and contains an eye-catching ornate arch. This and the small, round windows date from the twelfth century. The nave and tower are eighteenth-century brick additions.

Inside are box pews, galleries and an impressive pulpit with sounding board.

Surrounding the church, the graveyard has some interesting headstones from the eighteenth century and later.
