Anglican: St Lawrence

The existing church was built in 1861 to replace an earlier church on the same hillside site, the architect was Thomas Nicholson of Hereford. Situated, with the village school, alongside the A443 Worcester to Tenbury road, the main centre of the parish is Eardiston a mile to the east. A typical 19th century church, St Lawrence is usually open during daylight hours. (Ref Parish Website, May 2014.)
