St Mary and Holy Cross, Alderminster

St Mary and Holy Cross in Alderminster is within the Archdeaconry of Warwick in the Diocese of Coventry

The church sits alongside what was an early horse-drawn tramway connecting Stratford-Upon–Avon and Moreton in Marsh. The churchyard that surrounds this pretty 12th century church is managed by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and is a place of sanctuary for flowers, animals and wildlife. There is an interesting and informative display documenting this diversity in the porch. Walk around the side of the church and the path leads you to the river where a well-placed bench allows you to sit and enjoy the peaceful view over the River Stour. The church is open every day between 9.30am and dusk in the winter and 9.30am and 6pm in the summer months.
