St Mary the Virgin, Astley
Post Office Row
From Lady Jane Grey to George Eliot, this place holds so many stories. If you examine the gravestones in the churchyard you’ll find names that Eliot used for her characters. Inside the church is full of wall paintings and interesting nooks and crannies to explore. The Misericords in the chancel hold some surprises! Can you find the pig and the lady?
