  • Festival of Angels Lights up St. Peter’s Church

    angel fest

    The rustle of paper, swish of glue and snip of scissors has finally  come to a halt but paid off with some fabulous displays from organisations, schools, individuals and businesses from Kinver during last weekend.
    All came up trumps, in showing their support to this magical experience, the brainchild of of Senior Church Warden Mrs Margaret Emuss.

    The festival drew gasps of appreciation from visitors to the Village from further afield as well as  local residents, with an angel from local  cabinet maker David Dunn crafted from wood and leaves and measuring over four feet tall, as well as a pony made from chicken wire and papier- mache 12xhands high and 1.6xmeters= in length by local Riding school owner  Paul Beck plus an Angel of Remembrance from local Roofing Contractor Dave Howl.

    Guides Brownies Rainbows, local nursery groups all contributed to help this festival to be  one to remember.

    The memory Tree became covered in angels by those wishing to remember the loss of a loved one by bringing a passport sized photo and placing it  on an angel on the tree .

    Ladies worked furiously to keep up with the demand for tea and cakes. The Rag Doll donated by Eleanor’s Crafts from the High street was won by Bev from Forever Memories . The event raised over £2000.00 towards the cost of maintaining the Church.

    Gavin Williamson M.P. managed to call in and joined in the photo shoot  as part of the launch of the New look “The Rock” :The St.Peters  Church Magazine and to help with the appeal for articles from those local to Kinver who may wish to share their stories.

    In addition  Midlands T.V. Presenter Nick Owen also visited the Festival with his family.

    At four o ‘clock young families began to pour into church for the Christingle Service which held the toddlers spellbound and finished at four thirty with oranges and candles as well sweets been given to them to take home .The proceeds of this service were raised in aid of the Children’s Society.

Browse our pages for information regarding the heritage of Kinver village and Kinver Edge - an area of outstanding natural beauty which has been found to be incredibly important historically. Please Follow Us or contact us if you have any information you believe would be of use, or if you are interested in advertising on our pages.

The award winning village of Kinver and the surrounding countryside is steeped in history dating back thousands of years. The centre of Kinver village was planned in the feudal 13th century during the reign of the Plantagenet Monarchs, and the original burgage plots along the High Street remain today. There are plenty of Tudor Houses and Inns which have won awards for their restoration. The village was within the Royal Forest of Kinver, and nearby Stourton Castle was the Royal Hunting Lodge and Royal Forester’s lodge for King John. Kinver Forest was part of a large forest which included Wyre and Morfe Forests. Whilst the forest is a shadow of it’s once large expanse, Kinver can be easilly located with good accuracy in Google Earth from a great height.

Kinver Edge is a woodland sandstone ridge high above the village offering fantastic views across the West Midlands and surrounding counties, now owned by the National Trust. The sandstone rocks date back 230 million years to when dinosaurs roamed the planet, and are said to be the last inhabitated caves in Europe. The Martindale Caves were restored and reopened to the public in 2012. The Staffs & Worcs canal passes through the village at Dunsley, and is popular for boaters passing through on a boating holiday, walkers, cyclists and anglers.
