Interior of the Church

Our tour of Three Shropshire Churches with Tim Bridges, on 12th August 2017

Tim pointing out the Norman Pillars and arches

Built between 1868 and 1869 on an elevated position with superb views of Shropshire. In early Spring the churchyard is carpeted with snowdrops than daffodils

Our members enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea, kindly provided by Ladies from the Church, which rounded off a most enjoyable visit.

Begun in 1140, the Church is built of sandstone and tufa. 

Church of Holy Innocents, Tuck Hill.

Original Stained Glass Window by Kemp. Circa 1892

St Mary the Virgin Church, Alverley.

33 Stourbridge Historical members met at St Mary Magdalene Church Quatford. Built in 1086 it was the site of the first Bridgnorth parish church until it was replaced by the building of the church in Bridgnorth itself.
Constructed of sandstone and tufa, nearly 40 steps lead up to the church. An electrically powered lift was installed in 2005 to enable the disabled (or tired!) easier access. 
During the summer sheep graze the churchyard.
