Quatt is a small village in the Severn valley on its E bank, 4 miles SE of Bridgnorth. The church stands in the village centre.

St Andrew's has a chancel that is 11thc in origin with a 12thc doorway and window and evidence of work in the 14thc including a N chapel (restored in 1950). The tower, nave and N aisle are 18thc work and there is a 12thc font. This and the S chancel doorway are the only features recorded here.


The manor of Quatt was acquired by Roger of Montgomery in 1086. In 1127 the manor was grated to the priory at Great Malvern to which it belonged until the Dissolution. The first record of the church dates to 1255.


Exterior Features





Watson (1989) argues that thee western half of the S chancel is Anglo-Saxon, or possibly very late 11thc. This chancel was extended at a late stager, probably at the end of the 12thc when the Priest’ s Doorway was inserted.
