This is one of the most beautiful places in Shropshire. A totally unique Church in a river setting which is peaceful and inspiring. Best visited on a sunny day and avoid times when the river is flooded.

An amazing little find on the (very swollen) river bank. All wood but no nails and a lovely balcony.

An earlier church on the site was burnt down in 1401 by Owain Glyndwr during the Welsh uprising and the present replacement wooden structure was built in 1406, nine years before the the victory of Henry the Fifth at the battle of Agincourt. It is tempting to think of British bowmen coming from the area and attending the church. The building is an absolute delight, simple, with a few fascinating artefacts and it was a privilege to visit.

Firstly and most importantly; This church is not where it appears on the TripAdvisor map - namely it’s not south of Much Wenlock, but west of Shrewsbury in Melverley (as you may guess) That aside, this is a beautiful little church dating back centuries although renovated on a regular basis since. Absolutely charming location next the river. The church appears largely accessible throughout and the pulpit and balcony area are suitably rickety.

Like something out of a storybook...this church is quaint and really unusual. Worth a visit just to look, sit and marvel at it's structure.
