Step back in time and enjoy the stories the characterful carvings have to tell throughout the churches of Herefordshire.

The first stop will be the Church of St Cosmas & St Damian, Stretford, featuring two of the largest 16th-century timber screens in CCT’s care, as well as 600-year-old tomb figures to the patron saints of doctors.

Next we will explore The Church, Moreton Jeffries, a long, low, medieval church, whose dedication has been lost in time, has an attractive wooden bell turret and is set in a pretty field.

The third visit will take place at St Cuthbert’s Church, Holme Lacy. Located in a pretty setting on a bend in the River Wye, looking across to the Herefordshire hills. The wealthy Scudamore family were patrons of this secluded stone church for over 500 years, and their monuments are a spectacular treasure.

Then we will visit Yatton Chapel, a tiny gem of a church, built by the Normans shortly after the Conquest has simple and enchanting elements.

The Historic Church Tour will then finish with a visit to St Michael’s Church, Michaelchurch is said to have been founded nearly 1,000 years ago in 1056 and displays 13th-century wall paintings. This lovely church hugs the side of a remote valley.
