Heath Chapel

Buried in the countryside high in the Clee Hills, Heath is just about the plainest, simplest church you will ever see.

About this church

It really is possible to stand inside this gloomy unlit place and imagine oneself in the 12th century when it was built. There are subtle traces of earthworks north of the church which indicate that this was a more substantial settlement in 12th century than it is today. Nevertheless, by 1327 there were only seven families living here, plague exacted a heavy toll, so it is hardly surprising that the church is unchanged.
