This is the new church (built in 18th century) as the old St Chads fell down! Really is an excellent historic church with a striking dome and stained glass windows. Right next to the Quarry park

Have been to the last few Friday 12:40 concerts. What great performers to exceptional standards that perform there. Simply amazing. ...and free entry with no registration or ticket purchase. Overall quite a setting to experience music, especially piano, classical recitals and singing etc. Highly recommended.

We called into the church for a look around (I know Mark the last Vicar). What a beautiful peaceful place of worship. Well worth taking half an hour to look around, pause and pray.

We called in on chance because bell ringers were ringing some beautiful tolls. We spent a very happy half hour wandering round this beautiful Church. A very friendly and helpful chap spent time talking about his Church. Well worth a visit

I’ve been to a couple of concerts here – The Sixteen; Shrewsbury Choral Society. Good acoustics, reasonable comfortable seating (for a church), nice organ.

This church was designed by the same guy as St Paul's in London. Fantastic architecture and if your lucky the organ player will be there too!

"New" St Chads was built by Thomas Telford to replace "Old" St Chads church which fell down in the late 18th Century. The building of the new church caused some controversy as Telford demolished part of the old town walls. Built in a latinate style,...More

Take a trip to the graveyard and search for the headstone from the Christmas carol film. As it was filmed in Shrewsbury the headstone lays in the same place as it was in the film.
