Buildwas church marks birthday

Buildwas’s Holy Trinity Church was built in 1720 to replace a medieval church that was part of Buildwas Abbey. Ahead of its 300th birthday in 2020, community members have gathered together to form a Save Our Church group to raise funds to help maintain the building.

The group’s secretary Nigel Bowen said, “We’re also planning a project called Buildwas Church 300, where we’ll be documenting the heritage and history of the church and families associated with it, and sharing what we find with the wider public.

“If you’re interested in helping with the renovation or getting involved in the project in some other way, or if you or someone you know has a connection with Buildwas Church, please call us on 01952 432497.”
