19th May 2017          – a visit with Stroud U3A Church History and Architecture Group.

First we went for a walk from Oldbury on Severn, following the Severn Way out to the River Severn, in to Cowhill then up to the church

Two Severn Bridges

St Arilda’s Church

Good view from the church over the Severn

This church was repaired after The Great Storm of 1703, then restored in 1884-5, but had to be rebuilt after a fire gutted it in 1897, so the current church is a copy of the old building
