Stockton on Teme

 

Anglican: St Andrew


The Norman nave dates back to the mid 12th century and there is an excellent Norman south doorway. There were alterations in the 14th century and the chancel was rebuilt in brick in the 18th century. A E Perkins restored the church in 1845/46. St Andrew's features in Betjeman's Best British Churches (2011) and is usually open during daylight hours.
