Hollybush

 

Anglican:  All Saints.


Located on the southern edge of the Malvern Hills, All Saints is a small church built of local stone with limestone dressings.  Created for the local miners in 1869 as a chapel of ease to Castlemorton. The architect was Frederick Preedy who also designed the stained glass of the east window. Became a separate parish in 1913. The east end was extended in 1929. All Saints is open daily during daylight hours. (Ref A Church Near You, April 2014.)
