Welshampton S.Michael and All Angels, Welshampton: St Michael & All Angels, SY12 0JQ
The village of Welshampton is located in the northern part of the peaceful North Shropshire countryside between the historic market towns of Whitchurch and Ellesmere. Over the years the village has changed gradually from a thriving homestead for the farming community to a pleasant and characterful Shropshire village.
At the heart of all this stands the church of St Michael and All Angels - one of the most notable features of the village. With its 'round house' gable and beautiful lychgate, the church was described at its consecration in 1863 as "one of the prettiest ecclesiastical architecture of which this or any other country can boast". High praise indeed!
Today Welshampton is a thriving rural church with modern facilities and a respect for the inheritance handed on from previous generations of the faithful.
