A link to Elgar

Pendock church is seen standing proud above the motorway to Ross-on-Wye. Earthworks in fields north of the church mark the site of a medieval village and probably the de Pendocks' manor house.

Much of this charming church is Norman, although the tenth-century font suggests an even earlier building; in the fourteenth century new windows were added, and the west tower was built.

There are lovely sixteenth-century pews and Jacobean communion rails. It is thought that the famous English composer Sir Edward Elgar may once have played the lovely little Georgian organ inside.
