Yesterday - all my troubles seemed so far away! part 3

I discovered that Ross has a lovely eastern by-pass to the M50 and I quickly gotonto the other side of the River Wye, which was full and swiftly flowing. Takingthe Hereford Road I immediately turned off to my first target and wasimmediately seduced into stopping by

Apart from the tower, this church looks entirely rebuilt, but it is on a grand scale, especially for somewhere with so few residents. Four-bayed nave and aisles and chancel with north chapel/organ/vestry. The church was locked, but with phone numbers to contact, but this was not an intended target for the day so I was walking back up the path when a lady driving by called out to me. She had the key! The church is usually open daily from Spring to Autumn I was informed. I was left in the open church to take my photos. The surprise inside is the large and ornate chancel arch, Norman, and a strange shrine in a recess on the north side of the sanctuary. Sadly a credence shelf is fitted immediately above making appreciation of the carving on the top very difficult.
