St Mary, Welsh Newton, Herefordshire

The odd external dormer window is explained inside, inserted to light the rood screen. And this is a rare screen, a three bayed arcade in effect running across the church, the central arch narrower than the others. The east window behind is the only minor jarring feature, plate tracery of the Victorian period., and a match for the pulpit of the same time. Not much else to note, the font is probably C13 but a featureless tub-shaped example.
