Anglo Saxon church & chapel

Deerhurst has an Anglo Saxon partly 10th century monastic building still standing, St Mary's Priory Church. It is notable among Anglo-Saxon buildings for the many features of the period which can be observed[1][2][3]. Remarkably, there is a second important Anglo-Saxon building in the village, Odda's Chapel, a Saxon church, lying about 200 yards south-west of the church. An inscription dates this precisely to the reign of King Edward the Confessor[4].

Riverside setting

The village suffered badly from the floods of 2007 and local residents were seen on the local BBC news network, Midlands Today. Pictures of the floods can be seen at the Flooding Blog.
