History In Chaddesley
In Saxon times Chaddesley was originally named Cad lea or the place of Chad. In the Domesday Book our parish is referred to as Cedeslai.
Our church is a must visit and can be seen from the A448 (Bromsgrove / Kidderminster road) . It is a Norman church and dates back to the 12th Century . Must sees are the remarkable font, carved in Celtic style which dates back to the 12th Century. St Cassian’s also boasts two effigies, both of which are stone knights clad in chain mail. One has his feet resting on a dog and his hand on the hilt of his sword. The armour and chain mail are terrific and extremely detailed. You can see each small link of mail. https://www.britainexpress.com
