Eardisland, St Mary Church
Eardisland, St Mary Church
Eardisland is one of Herefordshire's famed Black and White villages. The parish church of St Mary the Virgin is a 12th century building with the addition of a 14th century chancel, vestry, and south porch.
The tower is much more recent; it was built in 1760 to replace one that collapsed in 1728. The building probably stands on the site of a much earlier Saxon church. The chancel roof dates to the 14th century, as does the sedilla and nearby piscina, and the two easternmost windows in the nave. Much of the interior furnishings date to a Victorian restoration.
