Wychbold

 

Anglican: St Mary de Wyche.


St Mary de Wyche was built in 1888/89 as a new church in the parish of Dodderhill. The architect was Lewis Sheppard of Worcester and the building was paid for by Droitwich salt magnate, John Corbett. (See also Stoke Prior) A large church in the 14th century, Early English style. An unusual feature is the sloping nave floor, caused by salt mining subsidence. The church is open daily between 10am and 4pm. (Ref A Church Near You)
