Historic Churches in Herefordshire

Herefordshire is blessed with an extraordinary collection of historic churches, with some especially interesting examples tucked in the rugged counryside near the Welsh border. Perhaps the most famous church in the county is not the glorious edifice of Hereford Cathedral, but the quiet little Norman church at Kilpeck, with its marvellous collection of carved faces decorating both the interior and exterior.
