Children’s Trail helps visitors explore history of Shrewsbury’s Georgian church

The trail, the Arts Society Shrewsbury’s second, (the first was for the Roman Catholic Cathedral) was presented to St Chad’s by the Chairman of The Arts Society Shrewsbury during the morning service on 25th July 2017 and was gratefully accepted, on behalf of the vicar and congregation, by the St Chad’s Treasurer and Duke of Edinburgh Volunteers’ Supervisor.

St Chad’s, Shrewsbury’s main civic church, used for many civic and military occasions, is much visited by a cross-section of the people of Shrewsbury, as well as by many visitors to the town and by several local schools who use it for services and concerts.

We hope that the trail will prove a popular and enjoyable way to explore the church.
