The Parish of Guarlford and Madresfield with Newland
Madresfield Primary School is situated in the parish of Guarlford and Madresfield with Newland. Our church of St. Mary the Virgin is directly opposite the school, across a small but quite busy road.
The present church building is particularly beautiful, designed by Mr. Frederick Preedy and dating from the mid-nineteenth century. The list on the church wall of Rectors goes back to the twelfth century. Only about 117 people live in Madresfield now.
The other Parish Church is about three miles away at Guarlford. That church is also St. Mary the Virgin.
Our parish is part of a United Benefice with the much bigger (in population) parish of Powick where there are churches at Powick and at Callow End. Each of those villages also has a Church of England School.
Revd. Gary Crellin is soon to be our Rector following his installation on Sunday May 27th. We look forward to welcoming him to Madresfield.
