This gem of a church dating from the 13th century rightly merits its Grade 1 status from its commanding hilltop position overlooking beautiful rolling south-west Herefordshire countryside. The church is open each day, and visitors are welcome to explore our fine grade 1 listed building. Take some time to stroll or sit in the churchyard, with its green burial area, and enjoy the views of the Marcle Ridge, the tips of the Malvern Hills, and the area around Symonds Yat.

Although most of the church dates from the 16th century, parts of the earlier structure are still visible, particularly the chancel arch, lower part of the south wall of the nave and the inner doorway of the porch. The Mynors Chapel was built in 1521 and the Mynors family still live in Treago Castle just down the road. There are a number of interesting features in the church and the remains of a 15th century preaching cross in the churchyard. The tower has six bells which are regularly rung, and the clock on the west wall is the village’s war memorial. There is an accessible toilet in the church.

Outside the churchyard, you’ll find a Bronze Age round barrow, known locally as the ‘tump’. And don’t forget to visit our excellent village shop with post office just around the corner.

St. Weonard is shrouded in the mists of antiquity but may have been a local hermit or a woodcutter – perhaps the same person as the Welsh St Gwennarth. For more information, please refer to our visitor leaflet available in church or on the St Weonards website, where you’ll also find news and service times. You can also find us on Facebook. Do come and see us!
