This book is an exploration of Herefordshire’s churches. It is not a straight gazetteer, for the author is concerned to place the churches in context, to tell the story of their evolution over a thousand years, and to indicate those buildings which are most rewarding to visit because of their architectural, artistic or religious interest. An introductory chapter- tells of the origins of the churches, of the influence of the Welsh, Anglo-Saxons and the Normans; and then follows a description of the treasures of the churches—the Herefordshire School of Romanesque Sculpture; the fonts; roofs,; screens; stained glass; memorials and effigies which enrich the great majority of our churches. The book then divides the county into areas in which the author indicates his personal choice of the medieval churches that he considers to be the most interesting to visit.
