"St Chad's" Stafford Things to Do Tip by leics
Stafford Things to Do: 16 reviews and 58 photos
I was hugely frustrated by St Chad's not being open when I wanted to visit.
But is a church and, sadly, English churches are not open all the time.
This is a truly ancient structure, dating back to the 1200s. Inside there are numerous ancient carvings...column capitals in particular..and, of course, the pre-Christian 'Green Man' makes more than one appearance. The church website (below) has some good information pages.
I was limited to what I could see from the outside. There are some wonderful carvings in the archway of the main door: weird half-face, half-heraldic design.
Even if the church is closed it is worth seeking it out for the exterior carvings. But, if you are luckier than me, it will be open when you visit Stafford.
Address: Greengate Street
Directions: To the south of the Market Square
