High Ercall

High Ercall is a small village, located 10 miles south-east of Wem. Apart from Ludlow in the south of the county, it was the last garrison in Royalist Shropshire to survive against the Roundheads during the Civil War. The village church of St Michael is a largely medieval structure, with the tower dating back to the 14th century. One curious artefact in the churchyard is the sundial which not only records the time in the village, but also in Rome, Jerusalem and Plymouth in Massachusetts.
