“Tamworth Church ”
Review of St Editha's Church

St Editha's Church
Reviewed 16 May 2017 via mobile

I seem to visit Churches all around the world and realised I have never been inside the one in my home town so today made an effort to visit.
A large church in the town centre with tidy grounds that is well maintained. There appears to be some building works due to start looking at the equipment stored to one side inside the church.
the wooden roof is lovely as are the colourful stained glass windows. There was a brick a brac sale inside when I went and they were very welcoming.
As churches go not bad at all.

Thank Kelly W

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 - Many thanks to local volunteer tour guide

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. Open to the public everyday, the architecture of this local parish church is well worth the visit. It's free and there is always someone around to point to areas of particular interest. For an ancient building it's warm and welcoming, why miss such a cultural gem?
