Minsterley is a village and civil parish in Shropshire, England. In the 2011 census, its population was 1,777. Minsterley lies one mile south-west of Pontesbury and 10 miles south-west of Shrewsbury. East from Minsterley along the A488, is the larger village of Pontesbury and to its south the hill range, the Stiperstones. The Rea Brook flows nearby and the smaller Minsterley Brook flows through the centre of the village.The parish church of Holy Trinity was built at the end of the 17th Century, by the Thynne family of Longleat and houses an internationally famous collection of Maiden's Garlands. The exterior of the west end of the Church is notable for the stonework memento mori, which include skull and crossbones and hourglasses. The churchyard contains war graves of a soldier of World War I and a soldier of World War II.The village also has active Congregationalist and Methodist churches.Until the 19th century, Minsterley was part of the parish of Westbury, hence its description under Westbury in John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales (1870–72) like this: "WESTBURY,... parish includes Minsterley chapelry, and forms a sub-district. Acres, 11,274....The p. curacy of Minsterley is a separate benefice. There are dissenting chapels, an endowed school with £30 a year, and charities £44." Minsterley civil parish is governed by a parish council separate from that of Westbury, is represented on the Shropshire Council and in parliament in the Shrewsbury & Atcham constituency.
