A church without a name

Standing in a pretty field, this Medieval church is a long low building, with an attractive small slated bell turret at the west end. The church’s dedication is lost in time.

Built from local sandstone, it dates from the 13th-or early 14th-century and seems to have been extended westward some time after it was first built.

Inside the church has a vernacular appeal, except for the elaborately carved Jacobean pulpit, complete with sounding board and reading desk, which is considerably more sophisticated.

    I have experience of this church as a school boy in the late forties /early fifties when the agacent farm was run by Ivan Price as a hop farm.the church was used every sunday by the hop pickers over a period of 6/8 weeks.this time was when school was closed for summer holidays.
    This time period was always looked on as a working holiday for families that were not so well off,
    The memories of these times are with me always and i sometimes wish i could turn back time. I did return for a visit 3yrs ago and was very dissapointed to see the farm buildings had been demolished and the place was nothing like it was..I took a number of photo's but when i checked them i found the film had not been fitted correctly and lost the lot.
    I now live in Australia with my family and miss the english farming country.
    yous sincerely George Davies

    This church is typical of many in the Diocese, boring on the outside but with splendour within. Apart from the splendid pulpit, there is a magnificent 17th century lectern. See hererefordshirechurches.com

    I am planning to visit this church soon as i am looking into my family tree, my great grandmother Nellie bowler was baskerville is buried here, my nans father was a norman davies that emigrated to australia, so the comment from George Davies above is very interesting as my nan lived on this farm opposite and she told me about when the hop pickers came to pick. If you George Davies reads this you can contact me (sharon) via my email address : wsworgan@btinternet.com as i think we may be related.
    Regards

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
