Cemeteries

This Church has/had a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1845, but we don't know whether or not it is still open.

Pevsner mentions it was designed by John Plowman jun. and the bellcote is "half-machicolated". The church is signposted from the road, just past the "Bishopswood" village sign, travelling north.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] I followed the River Wye into Herefordshire from Lydbrook, to find All Saints Church at Bishopswood oddly sited, high above its village in the middle of the woods. Dating only from 1845, it has lancet windows and an odd sideways facing south bell cote on the gable of a central outer bay.

After finding it locked, I then detoured to look at the remains of Flanesford Priory, which were long used as farm buildings, but are now holiday appartments.[1]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
