Church of St Mary, Abbey Dore, Herefs

I think this was the fourth visit here for me, but one I was happy to repeat. The ruined cistercian church was partially re-roofed in the C17 and a tower added in the SE angle of the crossing. The nave, once ten bays long, has largely disppeared apart from the first bay of the arcades and a number of ornate roof bosses preserved inside in the ambulatory. Screen, pulpit, pews and stalls all date from the C17.
