St Weonard, St Weonards, Herefordshire

Inside the church is spacious, and again the size of the tower is dominant. The C15 chancel screen has recently been removed to the first bay of the north aisle, and the benches removed from here to create a space for other use. The matching north aisle screen remains in situ but both to mee seemed to be more restoration than original woodwork, Odd fancy niche in this aisle with a stylised angel bracket above. The large four light east window of this aisle is filled with C15 stained glass, albeit restored. Also in the aisle the best memorial, d1765, a handsome composition with (top to bottom) hand grasping gauntlet, crest, small black draped urn, two cherub heads, inscription and garland. Another less successful monument is hidden away behind the organ, d1675, with stepped shafts top by stone balls
