Belmont Abbey, Herefordshire

The entrance has shifted from the north porch to a brand new glazed vestibule with automatic doors in the south east corner meaning you enter the church by the south transept. Work was proceeding on the organ whilst I was here, and for that reason I believe I had unrestricted access to the whole church. I noted alarm sensors at the entrance to both choir aisles and ropes hung across the crossing arches warning of no access. So be prepared if you come here to only visit the nave and transepts. Two tombs to two bishops in the north transept. The church has recently been restored following a Heritage Lottery Grant.
