Now a grade 1 listed building there are sections of the Church that date back to the 12th C. It’s a beautiful spot, over looking the Water Meadow and down a very quiet, country lane. The building itself is extremely pretty and has become famous (as Churches go!) when during a renovation in 1909, medieval paintings were uncovered which are
some of the oldest recorded. The Church’s turret clock dated 1680, is now in London’s Science Museum!

The beautiful remains of times gone by; truly stunning grounds and gardens to stroll through or picnic in, surrounded by the still alluring remains of one of the greatest houses in the Midlands, destroyed by fire in 1937.

A magnificent building, overlooking The River Severn. Incredibly it was built between 1084 and 1504, difficult to imagine how something so big with such fine architecture could have been created all those years
ago. You can book to climb the tower or just visit the main building anytime.
