Church of England Diocese of Hereford Woolstaston

St Michael & All Angels, Woolstaston - Steeplewood Fold

With a parish population of 23 this is the smallest church in the group and is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

A large legacy left to the church in 1991 enabled the rebuilding of the bell tower and re-roofing of the church with traditional hand-made Shropshire slates. The font is Norman with the lower bowl possibly from Roman Wroxeter.

This is the church and Rectory of the well-known Victorian clergyman the Reverend Donald Carr who became hopelessly lost in sub-zero temperatures and 20 foot snowdrifts while returning home across the Long Mynd after conducting a service at Ratlinghope. His grave is outside the West window.

The church is locked but a key is readily available from Rectory Farm just above the church. Visitors are warmly welcomed.

The church is part of the Steeplewood Fold group of churches and comprises six parishes – Stapleton, Dorrington, Longnor, Leebotwood, Smethcote and Woolstaston. The parishes have an approximate civil population of approximately 2000 and most lie to the west of the A49 trunk road between Shrewsbury and Church Stretton: approximately 5 miles distant from each. 


The parishes of the Steeplewood Fold are committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies. The Diocese of Hereford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA). If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
