The History of St Milburga Chapel

We have written a short article on the history of the chapel and the Primitive Methodists who built it – available here.

Stoke St Milborough

Stoke St Milborough is a very small village, consisting of a church and a collection of houses. It is situated on the side of a hill and the parish has a population of c400. The village is best known for its church (together with a very active bell ringing group) and the St Milburga Well, just down the road from the chapel.

We subscribe to the local parish magazine and you will find a copy on the sideboard. There are very often activities and events taking place in the village and slightly further afield. These include pub nights and cinema evenings in the village hall, which is a short walk away across the fields.  

Walks from the Chapel

We get a lot of reviews from guests to say that they have walked out of the front door and spent the day hiking in the hills. There are quite literally loads of walks you can access without driving anywhere or very far. Brown Clee Hill is an easy walk from here, along with a number of other walks. The Shropshire Way, a 200 mile long distance path, is close by. Walks around the area are available here.

Who was St Milburga?

2022 Google Map Photos of St Milburga Chapel

Please note that if you go onto Google Maps to look at where the chapel is, you will see that there is a tractor workshop located behind us, together with a collection of sheds and outbuildings. We have removed the summer house and sheds adjacent to the chapel and instead we have put in a driveway for 2 cars. The neighbouring land now has a brand new, environmentally friendly, wooden clad house on it and the tractor workshop is long gone. Hopefully Google Maps will catch up soon..
