Not all of our history is centred around London, York or 1066, Mercia was a kingdom too and Tamworth has one of the largest and oldest churches in the Midlands, dating back around 1200 years.

This is one of Staffordshire's majestic church buildings. Located in Tamworth, the capital of Mercia, this is a place with so much to offer in terms of stained glass, architecture, history and sacred space.

This offers a lot of history, with architecture to match, open on many occasions and festivals. Worth visiting the crypt and climbing the stairs to the tower. Try it out.

Attended my niece's wedding here recently. It's a beautiful building but in need of some restoration work. Appears to be well used by the local community. Centrally situated.

St Edithas Church is always worth a visit if you have the time, there is usually someone to answer any questions you may have and the peace there offers you a chance to catch up with yourself.

Well worth a visit just for the glorious windows> While the roof is not as stunning as some churches it is interesting as it is so different. Plenty of statuary and plaques to read.
