Christ Church is the most significant heritage building in Shieldfield. It was built between 1859 and 1861 by Victorian architect A.B. Higham in the Decorated style. It is built of squared sandstone with ashlar dressing, with Welsh slate roofs and a tower to the southwest. It retains much of its original Victorian architectural features, including a painted plaster interior.
The National Churches Trust’s £10,000 Community Grant will go towards a project to upgrade its facilities to improve their welcome to visitors. They will replace inadequate toilets and kitchen with modern facilities, including new plumbing and ventilation work. Other work includes replacement of windows, improvement to the heating system, and replacement furniture.
