Church (Anglican)
Church founded in medieval times. The nave was rebuilt in 1739 by Thomas Woodward of Worcester, and the whole church was rebuilt 1894-1898 by Sir Arthur Blomfield. The church was largely destroyed by fire on 21 February 1941 during an air raid. Rebuilt 1954-9 and reconsecrated 28 May 1959 by the architects Leslie T. Moore and Sir Percy Thomas, although Moore withdrew before building began.
