The sandwich was quite good, but the ladies who are serving need to buck up their act. No welcome, no hello, slow to deliver drinks (and food) and they ran out of brown bread. A lot of time spent whispering to each other which created a rather tense atmosphere. Granted they are working in pretty cramped circumstances, but a bit... More

A patchwork of different styles, stone, and glass makes a very pleasing whole. The stained glass was purchased from around the world, except the rightly famous 14th century Jesse window, which had been in Shrewsbury all along. Well worth a guided tour to get the most out of the place.

Amazing collection of glass and a sense of peace. Taken round by a volunteer who knew the history of this ancient church so well.

There is a wonderful collection of stained glass in this redundant Church which is under the care of the Churches' Conservation Trust. A lot of it is medieval and the East Window (Jesse Window) is very good indeed. The carved roof is also fabulous. The Church is open most of the time and free to visit.

A good wander around some high church bling, and none the worse for that; worth seeing for the stained glass and nicely eclectic masonry.

No longer a working church this impressive building is a must see. It dates back to the Norman conquest and sits over a former Pagan ritual site. It's the church that Darwin attended for school too. I honestly can't say enough about this church. It's in impeccable condition and the stewards on site are friendly and knowledgeable. I spent a... More
