A North Herefordshire Jewel

 

The church

Our beautifully located little Grade 1-listed Norman church, set in an immaculately kept churchyard, attracts many visitors, and is often described in the visitors’ book as “a gem”, “sweet” and “tranquil”. St Giles is widely recognised as one of the most attractive small churches in Herefordshire. The church has a remarkable tympanum arch at the entrance in near perfect condition, and unusual floral paintings covering three walls of the nave.

 

It seats a maximum of 40 people, is in a reasonable state, but requires ongoing repairs and maintenance. It has no permanent heating and no toilet. It was partly rebuilt in the 13th Century, and further (belated!) restoration and preservation work was completed in 2013.

 

The church is open to the public every day of the year.

As with all historic buildings, our church requires constant attention to retain its viability as a place of worship and an attraction of historic interest.
