Cranwich is a small village about 2 miles North West of Mundford. Sitting high in a circular churchyard St Mary the Virgin church has a timeless look. The round tower and much of the Nave and Chancel are pre-conquest. The Tower has circular windows with carved stone knots like primitive tracery. Battlements have been added at a later date.
There are a variety of Windows in the Nave and Chancel. The South Porch shelters a transitional doorway, so every style from Saxon to Perpendicular can be seen here. The roof has recently been re-thatched thanks to grant aid from Englsih Heritage and other bodies. T

The congregation now needs in 2016 to re-wire the electrical system and install new lighting. Please help this tiny communtiy of 60 people to achieve this important work to protect this ancient building for the future.

Services : On the First Sunday of each month at  3pm. BCP Evensong and sermon

                   On the Second Sunday of each Month at 3pm Holy Communion with hymns and sermon

This Church is available for Baptisms, Weddings, and Funerals.
