St Luke’s is a charming rural church, nestling quietly among fields, trees and historic farmhouses. It is a popular venue for weddings and much commended by visitors for its atmosphere, setting and upkeep. Those who like to ‘read’ old churches will find much to reward a visit. A helpful information leaflet is available.
Church detectives may like to speculate about the Tudor style recess in the chancel south wall and to admire a remarkable painted memorial to John Hill of Lower Court, dating from the 1590s.
Look out for the two pretty Norman windows on either side of the nave with their round arches as well as the lancet window in the west wall.
Dating from the 12th Century the church bears the signs of additional work down the years to the 20th century addition of the vestry north of the chancel. The timber bell turret is a particularly striking feature from the 19th century restoration and like the east window is quite typical of Herefordshire in style. The single manual ‘Positive’ organ is believed to be one of two in Herefordshire churches.
