Whitchurch, Shropshire. Roman coins, pottery and burial urns indicate that there was a settlement at Whitchurch at least 1,800 years ago. Today this is a pleasant, mellow market town, buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries.blending happily with those of more recent vintage. The original church was built here early in the 10th century by King Alfred's daughter, Queen Ethelfieda, who dedicated it to an early Christian martyr and her great-great-grandfather St Alkmund. This was replaced in the 14th century by another building in white stone from which the town derives its present name. This building completely collapsed on the evening of 31 July 1711, just after the congregation at Evensong had departed, and the present church, still dedicated to St Alkmund, was built immediately afterwards. A painting of the famous “White church” can be seen in the vestry of the present church whose tall tower is a landmark. Here, too, is a surprising treasure, the silken arms which formerly hung behind the Speaker's Chair in the House of Commons. Under a stone slab in the church porch, in a silver urn, lies the heart of the famous John Talbot, 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, who was killed in 1453 at the age of 80 while fighting with the English army against Joan of Arc, and whose dying wish was that his heart should be buried in the church of his native town. Another famous son of Whitchurch was the composer Sir Edward German, born in St Mary's Street in 1862.
