Hallow

 

Anglican: St Philip and St James

Hallow is situated on the north west edge of Worcester and there has been a church here since medieval times. A new church was built in 1830 and then replaced by the current large church in 1867/69. Probably the finest completely Victorian church in the county, it was built by Worcester Diocesan architect, W J Hopkins. The west tower was completed in 1879 and the spire added in 1900.
St Philip and St James is open during daylight hours (Ref local information, September 2014.)
