Unusual
Sep 2021
An unusual looking church with a circular design, close to the park it’s nice to look at. Probably more famous for the Scrooge gravestone, used for filming a Scrooge film quite a few years ago!

Magnificent Church
Sep 2021 • Solo
St Chad's Church is next to Quarry Park and is in the city centre.

It has a curved chapel and is worth entering yo admire the beautiful stained glass windows and architecture.

Really beautiful and a great place to pause and reflect.

Elegant church, excellent concert
Sep 2021
I went to a lunchtime concert here but it was also a church I wanted to visit. It is very interesting architecturally, being round and elegant. It is also placed at a focal point for the huge park in Shrewsbury. The concert was one of a series of free (optional collection) lunchtime concerts and was excellent - a very good mezzo-soprano with a wide repertoire. A sandwich lunch in the church hall was also free (donations requested). Altogether, a delightful post-lockdown experience.

My wife found my grave.
Aug 2021
So the wife found my grave, it’s nice to know that the church of Ebenezer Scrooge is doing well from tourism after the filming crew left the headstone for St Chads Church in 1984 with George C Scott. Inside the church its massive with round seating upstairs and down, really great to see.

Locked
May 2021
Traveled 80 miles to see the grave of Scrooge not real but as I love Christmas it was a must. It’s said it was opened Monday Wednesday
We went Monday but the grave yard was locked. A lady outside said it was locked for COVID-19. It’s the only grave yard I’ve seen locked

Disappointed as it was closed.
Oct 2020 • Business
The website says the church is open for visitors from 7am to 4pm but is is very definitely closed at the moment, apart from for services.
All the local churches seem to be the same.
Still quite interesting though.

FABULOUS CHURCH
Oct 2019
Whilst ambling around Shrewsbury I decided to visit this wonderful church.
So unusual with its architecture I just had to take a look!
Inside the church was also magnificent with so much history to see.
The grounds were also very well maintained.
Worth a visit.

Unusual church
Mar 2020
The circular nave was not what I expected as the alter is at the east end, rather than in the centre, as in another church of similar design. It's worth studying the inscriptions round the walls for historical interest. Weekly lunchtime concerts are held; the organ was played when we attended.

Visit to church
Feb 2020
I went to this church during a visit to Shrewsbury. This was built in 1792, after the original one fell down, it is unusual in shape, being round, it has a large tower and the building is in a prominent position, well worth a visit, recommended.
