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.
Hope Bagot is a Caring for God's Acre churchyard. For more information about the conservation work of this organisation, visit their website.
