I have a true appreciation for architecture, especially from times gone by. I took this photo as I was driving by and I have spent all morning trying to find out which church it is so I could share some of its history with you too.
We were exploring around the Ludlow area in Shropshire, but we also crossed over into Herefordshire so either of these counties could be home to this small, beautiful and very old building. I am not even sure that it is still a functioning church today.
There are many similar old churches around and they all date back to the 15th or 16th centuries, many of them being re-built sometime in the 1800s. There are usually some remains of the original building left in tacked and some have brass effigies to previous pastors dating back to the early 1500s.
