After enjoying the stroll long the cobbled street you will arrive at this impressive church with it's seperate tall bell tower. The church itself dates back to the twelfth century and boasts two different depictions of The Last Supper. Certainlly worth a visit if you have time in the lovely little town of Ledbury.

Worth a visit. Lovely church only spoiled by hideous plastic guttering and down pipes. Should of kept the original cast iron ones there!

Very interesting church...but a bit dark inside...maybe some artificial lighting ?...listen out for the Goldcrests in the conifers outside the west front.

There's a lot to see in this large parish church with its handsome nave and wide aisles with their fine rows of windows giving a sense of space (quite unlike the chancel with its rough limestone walls and porthole clerestory windows). There are plenty of memorial slabs on the floor, and other interesting monuments dotted over the walls. The best windows, with ballflower decoration, are in the north chancel chapel and are reminiscent of the finer ones at Leominster. It is worth finding the 'hidden' red glass window, set so high above the main east window that it is impossible to see from most angles. You need to stand in a central position about three feet back from the chancel steps; a couple of paces in any other direction and it disappears - very clever. The separate tower is as good a place as any to see the variety of building stone used and the mixture of grey Silurian limestone and Old Red Sandstone reflects the nearby geological boundary.

The church is at the end of Church Lane from which you get a fine view of the steeple. However the steeple is not part of the church, but tops a freestanding Bell Tower, added in the 13th century. The present church dates to the twelfth century, but major additions were made in the 15th century, including enlarging the North and South Aisles and adding the present wooden roof. There is a modern stained glass window in the North Aisle which particularly impressed me. The church also has two Last Suppers - a competent C19 copy of Leonardo's Last Supper over the alter and a C16 Venetian painting in the North Aisle. There are also a number of monuments including a tudor couple praying.
