St. Arild, Oldbury-upon-Severn, Gloucestershire


The church of St. Arild occupies the site of a Roman camp and is an ancient building of stone, in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, porches and a tower at the east end of the south aisle, with pierced parapet and tall pinnacles, containing one bell: there was originally a spire, but this was blown down in 1702: in 1885-6 the church was thoroughly restored and the south aisle and porch rebuilt, at a cost of £1,700: in 1898 the church was destroyed by fire, but was rebuilt in 1899 and opened Sep. 13th in that year: it now affords 200 sittings.
