Farlow: St Giles
It is with the greatest regret that we have had to close the church during the current outbreak of Covid-19, but this is to contribute to the restriction of infection and is for everybody’s benefit. The churches remain a symbol of God’s presence with us in all our communities and this time when they are closed may serve as a reminder of His caring presence with us in all places at all times, including in our homes and especially in times of doubt and fear.
Set at the top of Farlow Bank, above the site of the original mediaeval church, and with stunning views across the farmland to the Brown Clee Hill, the church of St Giles is a work of Victorian Gothic all in one piece. Set next to the village primary school, the church is used by the school and for regular worship by the community. This is one of six churches making up the Stottesdon Benefice in beautiful south-east Shropshire.
