Shobdon 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 Gothic style of Georgian church architecture and furnishing.

Shobdon Church is a wonderful building, of unique architectural interest and a treasure which we must preserve…”
HRH The Prince of Wales.
