Long Description:
"The original St Chad’s Church was adjacent to the existing tower and is thought to date back to the 15th Century. There have been many churches on this site but due to unstable ground, each has had to be demolished and the tower of the fifteen century church is all that now remains. Church warden accounts reveal that five churches have become unsafe and had been demolished in 1595,1793,1833,1892 and 1977.

The church tower which dates back to the 15th Century was saved from demolition and has been restored and made stable, thanks to the efforts of The Wybunbury Tower Preservation Trust." (visit link)
