Unusual shaped church. Set out very well with lots to catch the eye. History of the church is very interesting as well as the architecture. Visited the small cemetery which felt very peaceful. Even saw 'Ebenezer Scrooge's' gravestone!

Open very day for free entry to the public. So very unusual with so many interesting and historical subjects to review. Here you have a church which is not set on the normal East West axis.

We discovered St Chads quite by accident while on a walk around Shrewsbury. Our interest was first drawn to the figure on the war memorial opposite and to his uniform, it was to commemorate the fallen during the Boer wars. The architecture of St Chads then drew us like a magnet, so unusual and bold in design. No sooner through... More

A beauty to see! The architecture is incredible-something you could just sit and stare at. I loved the oldness of this church. Take the time to see this church as you won't be disappointed.

A beautiful unusual church overlooking the dingle in the quarry park. It is very interesting being circular in design and well worth visiting. The stained glass windows are lovely and there are lots of fascinating things to read about. Definitely worth seeing.

The design of the church is so unusual and would say it is worth visiting. The church was open when we arrived, the design inside is so impressive. Had a walk around the churchyard to take some photos of the building and to find out some interesting facts.

Called in here on the way to the Quarry in the park across the road. It really is a wonder. Very interesting design. The circular seating is magnificent as is the ceiling. Lots of interest here especially the memorial chapel. Some very moving stories to read of soldiers in the war. Thank you for keeping it open for people to... More

I believe it's the only one of it's kind in England, so worth a visit for that alone. It's fascinating to see as it's so unlike a normal church.
