Yazor, St Mary the Virgin Church
Yazor, St Mary the Virgin Church
A Victorian church on the edge of the Wye Valley. St Mary's was built by the Price family of Foxley over the years 1843 - 1855, under the direction of architect George Moor.
The most immediately obvious feature of St Mary's is the slender spire, in very distinct Victorian Gothic style. However, the most interesting feature of Yazor church is the striking interior, which is richly decorated with colourful stained glass, painting, and furniture. Much of this lush decoration was the work of the vicar, Rev RL Freer. The sanctuary in particular is richly coloured. Much of the interior furniture and monuments were salvaged from the old medieval church, which is visible across the field.

Yazor church is no longer used for regular worship, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust
