This is a lovely old church. It even has a balcony up stairs. It is 13 century.It's set in a church yard ,by a river next to a caravan site. But I have a lovely feeling each time I go to see it.

We were exploring access to the river at the old bridge between Crew Green and Melverley after reading information from the Environment Agency. Anyway we decided to have a look at Melverley and discovered their little gem. As you can see from my photographs St Peter's church is a black and white timber framed historical church, rebuilt in 1406. Apparently... More

We needed to go out of our way to see this church but it was well worth the detour. An original 600 year old oak beamed wattle and daub church with history in abundance. The original (over 1000 years ago) was burnt down by Owen G the notorious Welsh marauder. The interior (with gallery) was close to how it's always... More

Visited on a lovely spring day. Well worth the effort to find it. Such a gem set in a pretty village near Oswestry.

This is a remarkable church, constructed entirely of timber, and standing on the very edge of the River Severn. It is open every day and the interior has a very atmospheric feel about it. We spent some time just sitting and absorbing the history that is contained within this amazing building. It is well worth a detour from the main... More

Visited this church whilst on a short break at the big bear lodge. Quite hard to find in the small village of Melverley but is signposted on the country roads of Melverley. Don't bother with sat navs, they don't seem to work here! But well worth the trouble to find it! Incredible building, fabulous very old tree in the churchyard.... More

The Church is a wonderful example of a timber-built church, constructed shortly after Owain Glyndwyr burned an earlier Church down in 1406. It is well looked after, and following extensive work done by the parishioners in the late 1990s, it has been shored-up to prevent it falling into the nearby river. It is small , but very atmospheric, and is... More

This church dates back to the 1400s and is well worth a visit. In the quiet village of Melverley, it has a lovely charm about it. Only small but minister was very friendly.
