Dorrington: St Edward, Dorrington
Church Road, Dorrington, SY5 7JL

A church built in the Early English style by the Hope-Edwards family of Netley Hall at the height of the mid-Victorian Anglo-Catholic renewal period (1845).

This is a period gem and seats approx. 200 people. The church is open during the day and warmly welcomes visitors.

The church is part of the Steeplewood Fold group of churches comprises six parishes – Stapleton, Dorrington, Longnor, Leebotwood, Smethcote and Woolstaston. The parishes have an approximate civil population of approximately 2000 and most lie to the west of the A49 trunk road between Shrewsbury and Church Stretton: approximately 5 miles distant from each. 

To the West the parishes stretch up onto the Long Mynd Hills and there is ample opportunity for hill-walking, horse riding, off road biking, gliding and other pursuits. There are four good inns in the group at which refreshment may readily be found.

We’re here to help people find a relationship with Jesus Christ by reaching out into our communities, sharing our faith, learning more as we journey together - enjoying worship and praising God.

Do come and visit us either for a service or simply to appreciate the architecture and surroundings of the six lovely churches. If you would like to find out more or discuss any church matters please contact us via our website.

Details of our services are regularly updated on our wesbite and there is a contact page there too. There are many other activities that can be found on the "what we do pages" which can be accessed from the main menu.
