    AWE-INSPIRING
    The separate bell tower was huge and awe-inspiring, with a lot of fascinating information about its history displayed on the ground floor. The church itself was large, with many beautiful stained glass windows, memorials and different parts to it, all well cared for and attractive. It was very peaceful and welcoming. It is one of the most impressive of the many churches we have visited over the years.

    Ancient church with separate tower!
    The Church is essential for a visit to Ledbury. There has been a church on the site from the 8th Century and it has a fascinating history. The separate Tower is unusual and quite unique. As we visited a choir was practising for a concert and the effct was breath-taking.

    Lovely church
    I remember visiting years ago to see an embroidery exhibition in this church, but hadn’t really taken much notice of the actual building itself, so this visit felt like my first. So much to see and marvel at - and all beautifully maintained with enough information to make it interesting but not boring. I particularly liked the Heaton window with all its symbolism and unusual colours. Well worth a visit and I look forward to returning learn more.

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.

From the outside it looks just like any other church but prepare to be surprised. We were greeted by a friendly volunteer who gave ua a potted history of the church. The glass stained windows are worth taking time to study. There is a modern addition which is fascinating. The church and Ledbury are also connected to a naval ship made of plastic!

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.

On my way to Eastnor castle on Sunday morning, I thought I would stop and take a look at the Church St. Micheals and All Saints.
Parking on the main road near to the police station there is a lane that cuts through to the church.
The bells were calling the congregation on Sunday morning and what a fabulous sound.
On this occasion I only walked around the church and throughout the graveyard, not wanted to disturb the service that was about to begin.
Beautiful and interesting architecture, a grand church indeed!

This church is really charming. It has a separate bell tower and is blessed with the most friendly and helpful church warden. The stained glass windows are very interesting, both modern and old. A leaflet guide is provided to you asking you to locate certain places of interest around the building - one being a strange red light which I confess I completely missed until directed by the warden and was delighted by the discovery. The setting of the church at the end of a narrow cobbled street is quaint and nearby is a lovely garden ideal to sit in following the visit.

This is a beautiful church, dating from the 12th century and surrounded by the old graveyard. I had a particular interest in the church as many ancestors lived in Ledbury and I thought might be buried there. Imagine my surprise when the first grave I saw on entering the church yard was that of my great X 7 grandfather who died in 1796. Inside the church there was a volunteer guide who was very helpful and showed us all the features of the church and its history. Much of this information is contained in a useful guidebook which can be obtained in the church. There are many interesting details and it is certainly worth spending a little time there.

The first thing that stuck me as I entered was the sheer size for a small town parish church. The place is huge. Guided by the comments from a very pleasant and informative guide, we found lots of interesting details in a church that blends the really old with the more modern, especially some of the stained glass.

This large, unusual, brilliant church has to be seen to be believed.

unusually, the church steeple is separate to the main body of the church (we were told that there were six other similar churches in Herefordshire, though). Looking at the sheer size of the base of the spire, it is at least as big as many churches themselves.

Inside the church proper is a huge space with an array of glorious stained glass windows from a few different ages, although the majority are Victorian.

A massive organ is amongst the many wonderful items to look at.

If you are in the area, please visit this magnificient building - Impromise that you will not be disappointed.
