St Peter's Church, Adderley, Shropshire
- What's nearby
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 seventeenth-century screen and some early nineteenth-century heraldic glass, all associated with the Kilmorey family.
Only the chancel and transepts are in our care, with the tower and nave remaining in use by the parish.
