Hanley William

This Church has a charming simplicity and long history - it has been here since the time of the Normans.  The font dates from Norman times. The bell is pre-reformation. Above the doorway is a stone carved with a lamb, a reminder of Jesus the Lamb of God and the sheep farmers which are a feature of surrounding agriculture.The pulpit is carved from a single tree trunk decorated with a flower and diamond pattern.

In winter the churchyard is a mass of snowdrops

For geocachers there are details of a cache here

The Church is very much in use today with an “All Age” service at 10.00am on the second Sunday of each month and a Communion Service at the same time on the fourth Sunday.  There is also morning prayer said most weekdays at nine.
