The Church (no dedication), Moreton Jeffries , Herefordshire
- What's nearby
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 thirteenth or early fourteenth 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.
A 12th century church made of “handsome stone” in a tiny parish.
A medieval treasure saved by George Gilbert Scott
Angels, a demon and knights in shining armour
