Churches (118) : St Andrew, Shifnal

The parish church of St Andrew in the Shropshire town of Shifnal is Norman, and was probably built on the site of an earlier Saxon church. Parts of the church date from the 12th and 13th centuries with changes in later centuries especially after a fire in 1591. The church has a nave and chancel with North and South aisles and a 13th century tower. The tower and South aisle both have a battlement parapet. The church has a two storey South porch.

The church was restored in the late 1870s. The church is built from coursed sandstone and ashlar.
