It is difficult to understand why this church has been deconsecrated. The lovely building stands near the centre of the town and contains many exquisite medieval and modern stained glass windows together with various war memorials to the fallen soldiers of several Shropshire regiments.

St. Marys Church is steeped in history you can escape the weather and have a good look at the architecture then visit the café it is a real treat selling very good food and soups although it is small and gets very busy it is well worth a visit. Clean and reasonable prices.

This church is just lovely - beautiful floor tiles, stained glass and ceiling. The staff were really informative & helpful. We went back later to use the cafe and would recommend that too - great scones!

Finally got around to going into this church after years of walking past when shopping in town. What a beautiful historic building. An antiques event was being held and there were some nice pieces. The stained glass windows are beautiful. Lovely.
