Harley

St Mary

Harley is the only village in Shropshire called 'a thankful village' because in the First World War twenty men of the village went off to war and they all returned - by the grace of God.

The earliest part of this stonebuilt church is the tower. The lower part of it dates from the 13th century. The church itself was rebuilt in the 19th century and now houses a dedicated congregation from the village and farther afield. There is a  daytime opening schedule from March to November.

Family Breakfast service on the first Sunday of the month, a second Sunday Eucharist and a shared Evensong with Cound Church in alternate months. Alternate weeks there is a coffee morning with indoor bowls or just a chat in the village hall.  

There is an ancient yew tree in the churchyard which commands views over Wenlock Edge.
