click here to buy image The Church of St Lawrence in Church Stretton stands in the centre of this pleasant Shropshire town. Much of the church, including the nave, dates from Norman times and is one of only 45 British churches with a carved fertility symbol (a Sheelagh na Gig), a remnant of early medieval times. For this alone it is worth a detour from the Jack Mytton Way, one of Shropshire’s many popular walks.
