16/5 Remains of Church
- of Saint Mary approx.
215 metres to north-
28.10.60 west of The Flags
(formerly listed
as Ruins of old
Church of Saint
Mary, including
remains of cross)


Parish church, remains of. Late C12, partly demolished and ruined
after 1858. Roughly dressed yellow/grey and red sandstone. Remains
of chancel, approximately 10 x 7 metres and standing up to approximately
one metre high. Cranage and Pevsner describe a number of windows,
doors and other architectural features, but none were evident in the
ivy-clad ruins at the time of survey (December 1985). The old church
was replaced by a new building on Church Road to the south (q.v.) in
1858. It formerly consisted of a nave, chancel, porch and bellcote
and is said to have had a C12 chancel arch. It was formerly a chapelry
of the church of St. Chad, Shrewsbury. In the new church of St. Mary
(q.v.) there is a watercolour of the old church and churchyard before
1858, and there is also an oil painting of the ruins. The remains
of a churchyard cross (q.v.) and a number of chest tombs stand to the
south of the ruins. Photographs in the Shropshire Libraries Collection
show the north and east chancel walls still standing high with 2 small
east windows, chamfered north doorway, chamfered trefoiled piscina
and south-east buttress. The Flags is not included on this list.
