St James's Church, Kinnersley

Recent Photograph of St James's Church (Kinnersley)

This Church wasn't on our itinerary, but it looked so inviting when we drove past from nearby Eardisley on our route to Stretford, that we just had to stop to see it, and it proved well worth our time!

The west wall of the main body of the Church (facing us) is the oldest part of the building, and dates from the 12th century. Note the blocked up Norman doorway (partly hidden by the bush). The Tower dates from the 14th century, and is unusual in being offset from the body of the church, but still remaining attached. The entrance to it is from the west end of the north aisle, inside the church.

Kinnersley Church is plainly visible to the right, travelling northbound on the A4112 from Eardisley towards Leominster.
