Where we are
Woolstaston Church

St Michael & All Angels, Woolstaston

With a parish population of 23 this is the smallest church in the group and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

A large legacy left to the church in 1991 enabled the rebuilding of the bell tower and re-roofing of the church with traditional hand-made Shropshire slates. The font is Norman with the lower bowl possibly from Roman Wroxeter.

This is the church and Rectory of the well-known Victorian clergyman the Reverend Donald Carr who became hopelessly lost in sub-zero temperatures and 20 foot snowdrifts while returning home across the Long Mynd after conducting a service at Ratlinghope. His grave is outside the West window.

The church is locked but a key is readily available from Rectory Farm just above the church. Visitors are warmly welcomed.
