Little Nell at Tong Church

Little Nell at Tong Church

An afternoon excursion from The Stanage in Telford

A recent visit to Tong Church with a friend found us hunting for the grave of Little Nell and we managed to find it with help from another visitor.

This is as it says on the grave stone the ‘reputed grave’ of the character from Charles Dickens story The Old Curiosity Shop. Dickens is also believed to have visited nearby Shifnal.

The church was open to the public and extremely beautiful, well worth a visit.

We stopped on our way home from visiting the newly opened Granary at Weston Park.

The Granary sells a good range of local produce and is also home to exhibitions in the rooms above.

The carrot cake in the coffee shop was the real reason for the visit.

To get to Weston Park and Tong Church from The Stanage you exit at junction 3 on the M54.
