Lovely church which houses the tomb of Dr W P Brookes, founder of the Much Wenlock Olympian Games who invited Baron Coubertin (founder of the modern Olympic Games) to the town. Lovely stained glass windows and some old graffiti (1693 the oldest I spotted)

What a beautiful, peaceful and welcoming Church this is. We visited at the end of a cold November day but it was pleasing to see the doors still open to visitors. The grounds are also very picturesque and lovely to walkaround.

We stayed at a lovely restaurant B&B The Plume of Feathers just outside Much Wenlock about 5 mins drive. We wanted an evening stroll and this fitted the bill. We meant to come back during the day as the coffee shops etc looked tantalising as...More
