St Mary the Virgin, Alveley

St Mary the Virgin, Alveley, Shropshire WV15 6ND View on map

A fine example of an English parish church with a high survival of Norman and medieval fabric, complemented by late 19th century restoration work by Sir A.W.Blomfield. The richness of architectural detail throughout the church is noteworthy. Additional interest is found in the variety of fittings and monuments, particularly the 14th century wall painting, the late 15th century altar frontal and the painted reredos of 1887 by C.E. Kempe.
