St Peter, Adderley TF9 3RS

Parking.   Details of keyholder on the church noticeboard.

The cruciform St Peter's Church, Adderley in Shropshire, is set in rolling country, on the edge of parkland and dates mainly from around 1800. Clear glass fills most of its excellent pointed cast iron windows, made in the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in the Severn Gorge, some miles south.

The north transept is a survival from an earlier church which contains a remarkable seventeenth-century screen and some early nineteenth-century heraldic glass, all associated with the Kilmorey family.

There are four unusual areas of interest. 


It is the only divided church where the nave is the responsibility of the PCC  whilst the chancel and sanctuary are that of The Churches Conservation Trust


It is one of very few parish churches without a porch.





The large stone font immediately to the left of the door certainly dates back to the Middle ages and may be far older. The windows are of cast iron, installed when the nave was rebuilt in 1806.
