History of the Churches

The churches in the benefice are all completely different, in size, architecture, interior contents and style of worship.  The smallest church, St Andrew's in Aston-sub-Edge, was built in 1790s to replace an earlier building. The iconic spire of St Nicholas' in Saintbury can be seen from miles across the Vale of Evesham. Unfortunately due to its deteriorating condition it was closed as a parish church in 2010 and now belongs to the Churches Conservation Trust. Built in the 13th century, St John the Baptist and St Lawrence's in Weston-sub-Edge has wonderful victorian 'Wailes and Preedy' stained glass windows. The cruciform church of St Peter's in Willersey is most unusual and was built in the 14th century. St Peter's has close ties with the Methodist church in the village.
