Old Chad's or New?

There are actually two St. Chad's in Shrewsbury. One is the old ruins of an originally Norman church and then the newer one circa 1792 in a rare circular shape which makes for a... read more

I was not wowed by this church. It is unusual in that it is round inside. Not large and magestic, but old.

There are actually two St. Chad's in Shrewsbury. One is the old ruins of an originally Norman church and then the newer one circa 1792 in a rare circular shape which makes for a very interesting interior. It is reputed to be the third or fourth largest round church in England. For fan's of the early 1980's version of A... More

A beautiful and very unusual church in the round. I hadn't seen one before. As you would expect, very peaceful inside, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The graveyard holds a very special grave too! Ebenezer Scrooge!

A Christmas Carol (the one with George C Scott) was filmed in Shrewsbury. The gravestone was left in situ after filming was complete in the grounds of St Chad's; great photo opportunity that shouldn't be missed!

My husband and I saw this whilst on the Sabrina boat trip. On departing the boat we made our way to the Church walking through the lovely park past Hercules statue and the Quarry. The bells can be heard from all over and ring every 15 mins. Amazing building and a must when visiting Shrewsbury. We were surprised how quiet... More

http://stchadschurchshrewsbury.com/building-for-the-future/history/ This was a really unusual church - it has a circular nave. It's used a lot for concerts, and although I haven't attended one there, I would imagine the acoustics would be fabulous. It's well worth a visit. St Alkmund's Shrewsbury is unusual with its painted rather than stained glass windows - do visit. And the streets around St... More

For me this is the jewel in Shrewsbury. It is a beautiful and unusual church. Definately worth a visit. Several steps up to the main entrance so enquire about access if this is a problem before you visit.

Superb, well worth a visit. On our visit the bells were ringing and inside the organist was playing and the sound was excellent. Beautiful stained glass windows. Unusual round main body of the church with very tall tower. Excellent views from the church overlooking the River Severn
