This stunning Church is one of the most quiet and peaceful I’ve ever been in. I wanted never to leave, and felt silenced by its atmosphere. I could imagine people singing Gregorian chant, singing etc. The organ sounds so resonant, loud, fills the entire church.

We were fascinated to learn the wonderful ancient carvings were rediscovered so recently. It was interesting to see how this church has evolved and been saved since its creation in the 12th century. The docents showing us around were devout and delightful.

This really old church is full of incredible carvings. Well worth a visit as it is very unusual. We were lucky enough to be in Stafford when they had an open day with a guided tour.

St. Chad's is a beautiful historic church, I believe it's Stafford's Oldest. My Grandparents got married here. It's a beautiful building on the high street.

A very friendly man gave us a spontaneous tour of the church. Very interesting to hear about the different carvings and era's the church was built, restored, added to. Its a small church, but lovely. Definitely worth having a look.

This must be one of the prettiest churches in the country. The carvings are amazing. A local volunteer was tremendously helpful and dedicated.

In the heart of Stafford town centre, this really is an unusual little church. Small and neatly formed, it sits between two much larger buildings, and is a real little gem.
