Church of All Saints, Wilden
|All Saints, Wilden|
|Denomination||Church of England|
|Heritage designation||Grade II listed|
All Saints Church in Wilden, Worcestershire about one mile to the north east of Stourport. It was designed by William Hopkins with funds provided by Alfred Baldwin very close to his own home, Wilden House and one of his large iron works. It served the Baldwin family and their employees and was consecrated in 1880.
The original windows were replaced, between 1902 and 1914, with 14 designs by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, a brother-in-law of Alfred Baldwin—they were both married to members of the famous MacDonald sisters. They are mostly dedicated to members of the MacDonald, Baldwin and Burne-Jones families; one shows Alfred Baldwin's only child, the future prime minister, Stanley Baldwin, setting out on life's journey accompanied by a guardian angel. More information on the windows can be found in the book The Baldwins, Burne-Jones & Wilden's Pre-Raphaelite Glass, published in 2013 and containing extensive colour images of the windows.
The church has been linked in pastoral oversight with the parish church of Stourport, St Michael's and All Angels, for a number of years.
