A Bracing Walk around Meole Brace, Shropshire

Holy Trinity Church Meole Brace 1Today, we spent an interesting morning exploring the environs of Meole Brace, a village which whilst predating the County Town of Shrewsbury in terms of it’s foundation, has long been subsumed by, and may today effectively be regarded as, a district of the latter.

Blessed with fine weather, dry but with a sharp wind, our walk commenced with what proved to be, for us at least, the highlight of the morning’s excursion, a visit to the Parish Church of The Holy Trinity, noted for it’s complete series of stained glass windows by Morris and Company, with designs by Burne-Jones, Kempe, and Morris himself.

We are delighted to place on record our appreciation and Thanks to Lorraine Fletcher who organised this happy event, which raised a useful sum for local charities, and of course to our inimitable Guide, Stan Sedman, MBE of amenity group “For the Love of Shrewsbury”, an indefatigable “fountain of knowledge”concerning all things relating to this, his adopted home-town.
