  • St Chad's Church is very unusual in that it has a large round nave. The church is beautiful inside and has a lot of interest in that Charles Darwin was baptised here. Ebenezer Scrooge is buried here. ...  more »
  • This is an extremly unusual church in that the building is completely circular. It is quite ornate and there a few things worth photographing. The military chapel is also worth going into.  more »
  • Our favourite family film is A Christmas Carol with George C Scott so went here to see the grave of Ebeneezer left over from the 1985 film.  more »

  • What did St Chad's had to offer us when we moved here 7 years ago? Our friends who have been a constant source of joy and support. Lovely, friendly faces in church who always made us welcome, always had a kind word to say. Generosity is a word I would attribute to St Chads, from supporting the local food bank to the Christmas shoe box, the travelling teapot offered to those less able in their own homes to name a few. In my opinion, St Chad's has something to offer for everyone.
  • A Stunningly Beautiful and Calming Place where you could sit and linger. It is across the street from the Park in the bend of the Severn River where there is a monument to those fallen in the Transvelt, Africa. Britain honors it's fallen.
  • A fabulous church in Shrewsbury. It has a lovely feel to it. It's very peaceful, and there is an upstairs gallery,, fashioned in a curved format. Fantastic! It's also very close to the river for extending your walk.
  • An 18th century Catholic looking church built on the hill in the Shrewsbury. The bell tower is visible across much of the town, and the unique, round structure lends itself to a very characterful nave and alter. Even the pews themselves are rounded, all facing towards the altar and impressive stained glass windows. There is a mezzanine around the nave with additional seating. There is also a small chapel to the old Shropshire Regiment.
  • An interesting building.
