Pillerton Priors

Pillerton Priors is located seven miles from Stratford-upon-Avon and north west of the high wooded face of Edge Hill. It is also one mile to the east of the village Pillerton Hersey.

The Church of St Mary the Virgin at Pillerton Hersey serves both parishes, as Pillerton Priors' Church of St Mary Magdalen was burnt down in 1666 - the same year as the "Great Fire of London".Despite this tragedy the churchyard is still consecrated and in use, and a service is held there once a year, normally on the Sunday nearest St Mary Magdalen's Day, 22nd July.
