Beautiful stained glass windows. The bell tower has only one stable wall. The internal wall has no windows as they break when the bells are rung. The stairs are rare as they have a double helix spiral. Access by the public to the tower is limited to twice a year. Photo is plaque in memory of Pvt Samuel Parkes VC... More

This Anglican church is most definitely one of the highlights of Tamworth town. Its architecture is fascinating. It is apparently the largest medieval parish church in Staffordshire and stands prominently in the town centre. Most of it dates from 14th and 15th centuries. One can experience history, art, architecture and spirituality all in one fascinating building.

Not all of our history is centred around London, York or 1066, Mercia was a kingdom too and Tamworth has one of the largest and oldest churches in the Midlands, dating back around 1200 years.

This is one of Staffordshire's majestic church buildings. Located in Tamworth, the capital of Mercia, this is a place with so much to offer in terms of stained glass, architecture, history and sacred space. Boasting a grade one listed church organ is the cherry on a feature rich venue. Not only that but if you have kids who are into... More

This offers a lot of history, with architecture to match, open on many occasions and festivals. Worth visiting the crypt and climbing the stairs to the tower. Try it out.

Attended my niece's wedding here recently. It's a beautiful building but in need of some restoration work. Appears to be well used by the local community. Centrally situated.

St Edithas Church is always worth a visit if you have the time, there is usually someone to answer any questions you may have and the peace there offers you a chance to catch up with yourself.
