We chanced upon this lovely old stone church, parts of which date back to the fifteenth century, during our short stay in Shrewsbury and there was lovely organ music playing – very atmospheric and well worth visiting.

A great place to visit and especially on a warm summer afternoon. Worth a visit and the surrounding areas too- including Fish Street, Grope Lane and Bear Steps!

An oasis of calm in the middle of Shrewsbury. It has an unusual painted window which looks very modern although it’s not, there are also some Victorian cast iron windows.
