The Arts Society Arden warmly invite you to join them for a special day out on Tuesday 16 July comprising a visit to two very interesting churches and a pub lunch.
The day begins with a morning’s visit to the parish church of Saint Alphege in Solihull. Situated at the top of the High Street this red sandstone Grade I listed church was founded in about 1220 and is a large and handsome example of English Gothic church architecture with a traditional spire 51 metres high making it visible from a great distance.
We then travel by coach to the Bull’s Head Inn in nearby Wootton Wawen for a glass of Pimm’s (or soft drink) before our buffet lunch of assorted meat and vegetarian sandwiches, salad, fresh fruit, fruit cake and tea and coffee.
After lunch we will visit the parish church of Saint Peter in Wootton Wawen with its famous Saxon sanctuary, the oldest church in Warwickshire, although much of the fabric is later. Notable features include: the font resting on eight sculptured heads; a 15C oak pulpit and choir screen; a small chained library of 17th century theological works; and monumental brasses.
