St. Alkmund's Church in Shrewsbury

At the heart of Shrewsbury, founded about the year 900, stands the church of St Alkmund, next to Bear Steps.

There’s a lot going for this town centre church, not least its reputation for the friendliness of the welcome given to its many visitors. The east window is the focal point of St Alkmund’s, a notable survival of the work of Francis Eginton, famed in his time as an enamel painter on glass. His copy of Reni’s Assumption of the Virgin Mary is well worth a visit.
