This Norman church is amazing. The carvings all around the church are a real treat to see. The interior is interesting as well. Just 30-40 metres away one can find the remains of Kilpeck castle. If one climbs to the top of the mound there are some great views. Well worth a visit.

This is a strange little church and worth checking out while in the village. Try and spot the hoar one around the back.

This beautiful and ancient church is not publicised but it is a gem of Herefordshire history. The site dates from the 6thC and possibly back to Roman times, with the present church dated to 1140, though there is a Saxon quoin (buttress) on the north side. What makes it truly amazing is the stone carvings in the church and its... More

A fantastic church and a must for anybody with the smallest of interest in buildings of any kind. I have visited many times over the years since the 1970's but my latest visit in 2016 left me feeling a little sad with the church still a magnificent building but the churchyard seems to be slowly turning into some sort of...
