Stoulton

 

Anglican: St Edmund


The nave and chancel are Norman from the mid 12th century, both Norman north and south doorways survive. There was a restoration, by Worcester architect A E Perkins, in 1848. The tower, originally 18th century, was replaced in Cotswold stone, in 1936. 

St Edmund's is usually open daily during daylight hours.  (May 2017)
