We have been away for a few days to the beautiful county of Herefordshire. This is a county, that until quite recently we had not explored, but what a little gem of a county it is. Full of churches, castles and stunning views, we visited so many places that I got dizzy on the last day, because there was still so much I wanted to see. We did very well though in the full three days that we had, we also popped across into Wales and explored a few castles and churches there.
This is the beautiful south doorway of the Parish Church of St Mary and St David in Kilpeck in Herefordshire, a further post will follow of this wonderful church. There is also a castle behind the church and a deserted village to the left, hopefully posts will follow on these as well.

That really is a fine doorway.
Yes its quite remarkable that it has stood the test of time 🙂
The carvings around the door almost look Hindu–I’d love to see this in person!
Maybe you will see it one day, I am planning to do a post with some close ups of the carvings, and there is much more to this church, you are quite right you would really enjoy it 🙂
Looking forward to the detail shots.
I’ve been wondering where you’d gone off to. 🙂 That door is wonderful. Can’t wait to see the rest.
Next time I go to Herefordshire I will make sure the site we are on (we had a short holiday in our motor home) is in an area that you can get the internet. It was awful at first, but soon reverted to the old fashion way of reading a book and having conversations. This church is amazing, there is so much that I will have to do it piecemeal 🙂
Fantastic, Lynne! I have heard of Kilpeck, and am looking forward to hearing more. What a magnificent doorway for a village church!
Yes is one one beautiful doorway, it’s amazing how it has survived so well 🙂
What a stunning, stunning doorway! Must be one of the finest Romanesque doorways in the country. I would love to visit it one day.
Yes its amazing and you would love it 🙂
One of my favorite haunts~ been many times over the years~ a jewel and priceless.
Yes i think I would visit lots if I lived closer, it has a lovely feel to it 🙂
did you know that the mound behind it was the site of a castle? Nothing but some rubble left but a fine view ~ we had a lovely picnic there once.
Yes we climb it, there are some wonderful views and a little bit of stonework left 🙂
oh good. : )
