This Church has (or 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 the 14th century, and we understand it is still open.

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] The doorway and nave are 14th century, but the chancel, and most of the nave windows are newer - 1877, according to Mike Salter's The Old Parish Churches of Herefordshire. It does nevertheless have the appearance of an ancient church. Unfortunately we were unable to look inside - where, so I'm told, the feel of an ancient church is likewise in evidence.[1]

[Image 2] Quite remote and really cutely proportioned church, not tall and rather narrow. Over restored, but containing a good Jacobean font cover and early glass by Kempe in the East window. However the star attraction here is the hanging monument to a Mrs Dobyns d.1658, a mix of rustic framing and allegorical flanking figures but a frontal bust of the lady holding a baby of exquisite detail.
[Ed: ex. Phil's Flikr site, as the church was locked on my visit in 2008, and ever since then I have been desperate to know what it's like inside!][2]

[Image 3] This dear little church gateway provides an attractive ‘frame’ for viewing the church.[1]


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.
