About Us

 

 Our Church

“Selsley is to Victorian stained glass what Fairford is to late Gothic” (1). All Saints Selsley is most unusual; just over 150 years old, with its distinctive saddleback tower and its French Gothic gables, it is the last of the great Cotswold wool churches. Under William Morris’s leadership, the Pre-Raphaelite brotherhood (including Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown and Philip Webb) made All Saints their first stained glass commission. The result is a gem which attracts visitors from all over the world
