Stottesdon

St Mary's Church

This church was described by Pevsner as “one of the most important churches in the district”.  The oldest building in Stottesdon, St Mary's Church is pre-Norman with parts that may date at 450 CE, although the bulk of the church is post-Norman. The churchyard contains the war graves of three British soldiers of World War I.

A centre of worship and prayer for almost 1000 years and still in regular use, Grade 1 Listed – the Saxon Tympanum, Norman Font and Medieval tiles are remarkable - and complement the churchyard’s solitude and superb views west to the Clee Hills.
