About High Ercall
Interestingly, the village was mentioned in the Doomsday Book of 1086. Another place of interest here is the church which stands next to the remains of High Ercall Hall. It is thought a church may have stood on this spot since Saxon times but St.Michael's shows mostly medieval work with a tower dating from the 14th-century. The base of the tower is badly weather-beaten, however the parishioners have a more romanticised explanation, they say the damage is due to people sharpening their weapons on it in ancient times. The church interior is interesting with many treasures from its rich historic past. In the churchyard, as well as graves covering several centuries, there is a sundial from the 18th-century which records the time in Jerusalem, Rome and Plymouth in Massachusetts.
Another striking feature of the village is the almshouses of 1694. The building is of brick with small dormer windows, it carries an air of solidity, matching the rest of the village.
Lying a short distance from the ancient town of Shrewsbury amid glorious water meadows and fine countryside, this delightful historic village makes a pleasant stopping place when visiting the Shropshire area.
