Churches (30) : St Mary Magdalene, Bridgnorth

The parish church of Bridgnorth, dedicated to St Mary Magdalene, was designed by Thomas Telford in the Decorated style and built in the early 1790s. It replaced an earlier church that dated back to the thirteenth century. Unusually the church is aligned North-South, to take advantage of the vista from East Castle Street, and not West-East as is more usual.

The church has doric columns externally with ionic columns internally. The tower, which is more Gothic than other parts of the church, is to the North.
