Holy Trinity Church, Bosbury

Recent Photograph of Holy Trinity Church (Bosbury)

The weather here looks idyllic, but it had been raining earlier in the afternoon - obviously the sky had been washed clean! How can the Churchyard Cross, which is so obviously visible on a photograph taken some eight years later from a similar viewpoint not show up on this photograph? In fact it's because - by pure chance - its stem is aligned almost exactly with the divide in the Perpendicular window of the castellated Morton Chapel - follow the divide in the window downwards, and it's possible to see the base of the Cross.

Note the Tower is detached from the body of the church. This is also the case for St Michael & All Angels Church in Ledbury, Herefordshire, just a few miles away - these are just two examples of a total of seven free-standing towers in Herefordshire.

There is also an Old Photograph of Bosbury Church showing the view from the other side.
