St John the Evangelist, Shobdon

shobdonShobdon Church is a hugely important work of architecture. It has a direct connection to Horace Walpole’s Strawberry Hill in Twickenham and the members of the “Committee of Taste” which strongly influenced its design. Its amazingly intact interior and matching furniture are the sole example of this Walpolean Gothick style of Georgian church architecture and furnishing.

Shobdon church is open from 9.00am to 6.00 pm in Summer and until dark in Winter. If you would like to come later, please ring on 01568 708364.
