St John's is a most attractive little Norman church situated in  the secluded Hope Bagot village, the smallest  independent parish in Shropshire.  The church's finest features are:-  The Norman chancel arch and a Carolean pulpit.  A huge yew tree, believed to be well over 1600 years old, spreads  over the holy well.
