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...

This is a lovely church with some fantastic, incredibly well-preserved carvings on the outside walls. Inside it reflects its peaceful setting. We walked up to what remains of the adjacent castle - worth the climb for the views of the beautiful surrounding countryside

Whilst staying at the Kilpeck Inn we visited this pretty little church just a hundred few metres across the road. So much history to be found in the architecture and a place clearly loved by the locals. Great views of the countryside around. Definitely pleased we made the effort to go and look.

If ever you want to see a charming little Norman church, please stop at Kilpeck. The stonecarvings are amazing. For a wonderfull view, walk up the motte of Kilpeck Castle, next door. This wil take you just a five minutes detour from the main road, but is definitely worth it. Picture postcard pretty and all for free.

A gem of a church with fantastically old, but sharp, carvings and a lovely calm atmosphere and location. It is positioned next to the vestigial remains of the local castle.
