Opening times

Sorry, there are no regular opening times for this church.


PL15 8RU

Notable things to look out for include a tympanum over the north door with a serpent carved on it, and another, originally from over the south door and now inside the church, with a Lamb of God carving.

There is a simple Norman font, and an unusual and rare Norman pillar piscina. There is an alabaster tomb probably of Edward Hastings, Lord of Penheale, dating from 1510, and interesting because he is shown in civilian clothes, not the military attire that was the norm.
Another unusual survivor is a section of early 17th century stained glass.
