St Arilda - Oldbury-on-Severn

Christianised Site


The tumulus on which the Church stands is of uncertain date and may have pre-Christian pagan associations. There is an Iron-age settlement in the village 0.5 mile to the north, and Roman coins have been found here in the churchyard. The chancel stands about central on the tumulus, with the tower alongside on the highest ground. Formerly many fine elms grew around the perimeter, these unfortunately all became victims of the Dutch elm desease.
