Old Church of St Mary, Edvin Loach, Herefordshire

Down a bumpy track off the road but thankfully there was a car parking area for turning round. These ruins stand to the east of the present church and are fairly featureless apart from a long wall of herringbone masonry and a south door with a worn tympanum. The most puzzling feature was in the south west corner of the nave where a solid block of masonry jutted into the nave and appeared to be buttressed with a sloping wall. A sign had fallen by the car park saying Welcome to the Saxon Church or some such thing, but Early Norman would be as far as I would go with what we saw.
