The church of Church Stretton is a large Norman building in keeping with the nearby churches of Holdgate and Tugford.. The Sheela can be found on the north face of the building over an old doorway. As you can see from the photograph it is quite weathered, the stone has a reddish tinge which is dissimilar from the surrounding stones. Just below the carving is another small carving of a flower which appears to be of the same stone.. This would seem to indicate that this was not it's original position and might have been taken from an earlier structure. The vagina has been filled in with a small stone this may be an attempt to make the image a little less "crude". An unusual feature of this figure is the fat thighs or knees.You can just make out vestigal ribs on the chest of the figure. All in all the carving is quite crude which again makes it look at odds with the rest of the church. It is quite high up on the church and appears to be guarding the door below it. This is also the case with the Tugford and Holdgate Sheelas.
Sheelas are all in the same vicinity. Holdgate and Tugford being a mile
distant from each while Church Stretton is about 10 miles away.
