Churches (125) : St Mary and St Leonard, Wombridge

The church of St Mary & St Leonard in Wombridge in Telford, Shropshire has been built on the site of the former Wombridge Priory. The priory was dissolved in 1536 and now little visible remains. The lady chapel of the former priory church remained standing until 1756 when it collapsed. The new church was built in 1757.

The church consists of a nave and a West tower and is made from brick and dressed stone. The church was expanded in 1824 with the addition of North and South aisles and galleries. A chancel, organ chamber and vestry were added in 1869.
