Summary Description

In the middle ages Adderley was a thriving market town, and had a mediaeval church on the site of the present building. Nothing of this remains except the chapel which was added on the north side in 1635-7. The next building period is represented by the tower, which was erected in 1712, replacing a former structure which had become almost derelict. The main part of the church now standing dates from 1801. No architect is known for any part, but it is probably by Richard Baker, the builder of the church.
