Audlem

Last time I wrote that I would do a bit more on Audlem, so here are a few images along the Shropshire Union Canal and in the village.Audlem Cross

Church of St James the Great

St James the Great was one of the twelve apostles, brother of St John.  The guide says the church is 800 years old, but, while there have been later additions, the present church is more or less as it was in the 16th century.  The font is 15th century and the pulpit 17th century.  Most of the windows are 19th century.  The six bells were all cast in 1736.  The round shape of the churchyard, it says, implies an earlier Celtic settlement.
