Five Church Trail

St. Mary’s imposing red sandstone dominates the landscape as it towers at the centre of the village like a fortress. Kinnerley Church was the Mother Church of all the churches south of Oswestry. Archdeacon Thomas suggests that Kinnerley Church was the centre of evangelising the area south of Oswestry as early as the sixth century.
