Stunning church with good history and great links to the local Regiment whose colours are kept here. Friendly and helpful staff, thank you very much.

This is the newer Church of England Church in regular use. Unusual round shape. We went to Evensong on the feast of Corpus Christi, not many there, but the very friendly priest said there was a good congregation on Sundays.

A stunningly beautiful interior. The font relates directly to the Darwin connection and is full of fascinating fossils, highly polished. The service was wonderful.

This must be one of the most beautiful churches that you are likely to visit.The stained glass is stunning and the plaster work of stately- house quality. The volunteer steward was welcoming and knowledgable .

St Chads stands high above the quarry. It is a beautiful building and I often show any visiting friends inside if we are passing. The church is pretty much always open and I have never felt unwelcome.

The décor is amazing and the details and original features, wow. It seems such a large place on the outside but you realise very quickly that it is quite small inside, but still amazing, a must have if you are visiting Shrewsbury.

Delightful lunchtime concerts most Friday afternoons with a range of professional classical music performers. The acoustics of this beautiful round church are a delight no matter what is being performed. A light lunch is available in the church hall afterwards. When you go - do donate generously!
