Stoke Bliss


Anglican: St Peter


In attractive countryside south of Tenbury Wells, Stoke Bliss is a scattered community which was in Herefordshire until 1897. St Peter’s dates back in parts to the 12th and 13th centuries but was substantially restored and rebuilt by James Cranston in 1852/54. The parish website has a useful history page. The church is usually open during daylight hours. (Ref Local information, 2013)
