Wroxeter is a village on the River Severn in Shropshire. It is at the site of the Roman city of Viroconium Cornoviorum, which was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain. Standing Roman ruins are found just outside the village. The church is St. Andrew's, and was built partially from re-used Roman stone. The font in the church was made from the hollowed-out base of a Roman column. Wroxeter was abandoned as a Roman city in the sixth or seventh century, and a small village grew around a ford at the southern end of the city. The Roman stone was used as building materials in the local area.
