ALL SAINTS' CHURCH

Hereford, Herefordshire

All Saints' Church, Hereford, Herefordshire

This handsome church is at the opposite end of Broad Street to the Cathedral. It dates from the early 1300s when it was founded as a minor monastic settlement. It soon became a parish church and the spire which dominates was added only a few years later, making it a very early spire.

Inside much is as it was in the medieval period, the choir stalls are still here from the 14th Century – a remarkable survival in a non-Cathedral church. The pulpit was added in 1621 and one interesting article in the vestry is a 17th Century hour-glass which was placed there to stop long sermons!
