My twin sister and I were baptised in St. Mary's in 1950. The unusual ancient font is one of the first things you see, on your left, as you enter this, now deconsecrated, church. The outstanding Jesse window and other stained glass windows are alone worthy of a visit & the soaring spire, one of the oldest in the country,... More

There is now an excellent little café in the church. Tasty and well presented lunches are served here from a very small kitchen by cheerful staff or perhaps volunteers.Another part of the church is a small gallery for local artists.

Well worth a visit! Although a small building, it has outstanding stained glass windows. Some of the best we've seen anywhere. Nothing to dislike.

Well worth a visit. This was interesting place with fantastic Jesse window and good local art display. Cafe with marvellous scones and coffee and a loo for suitable for the disabled in wheelchairs. HOWEVER the pews were all nearly all pushed together so there was little place to sit. The place for prayer was near the way to the coffee... More

Hemmed in by much later buildings the church has faired well and the steeple stands proud in the beautiful skyline of Shrewsbury. I'm told (although I can't confirm) that St Mary's steeple can be seen from every angle around the town? Inside its humble in its simplicity as a good English church is expected to be, a walk through the... More

Nice place to sit and reflect. The building itself is impressive and looks inviting from the outside, gives a nice break from the busyness of life to be able to sit and just enjoy the surroundings.

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. Also here is the memorial to the famous Admiral Benbow who was born in the parish.... More

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.
