St Chad's Church in Shrewsbury has the largest circular nave in the country, where Charles Darwin was baptised in 1809. It’s located on the edge of Shrewsbury town centre and the 29 acre Quarry Park and Dingle.
St Chad’s holds many concerts and organ recitals and attracts performers from far and wide. Free Friday lunch-time concerts have become a “must-do” for many - followed by lunch in the church hall.
St Chad's foundation dates back to the 8th century and is the oldest Christian foundation in Shrewsbury. Old St Chad's literally collapsed in 1788 to be replaced by the new St Chad’s, widely regarded as a Georgian masterpiece.
