We’re touring our Maddox sites in Shropshire and Wales this week, and one of the most impressive has been St. Michael’s Church in Munslow, Shropshire, England. St. Michael’s is a 12th-century Norman-style Anglican church with an intricate interior, including 15th-century stained glass windows, a 15th-century baptismal font, and original pews. Our ancestors attended this church in the 1600s. They were baptized in the same font, sat in the same pews, and stared at the same stained glass windows. It was an impressive visit. We’re indebted to Reverend John Beesley for allowing us to join his congregation for Evensong.
