Wolverley Tapestry


High above Wolverley is the Church of St. John the Baptist: it stands on the hill like the church at Kinver but the walk up to it is much easier.
Just inside the door is a tapestry made by the local Women's Institute for the Queen's Golden Jubilee .

It is beautifully made and depicts the sights around Wolverley.  The tapestry work appears to have been done from photographs and is very realistic.


Other detail has been added in applique and machine embroidery.

Even Mr. Brindley gets a mention.


The quest for realism even extends to including the CCTV cameras on the depiction of the Queen's Head pub.
