Kinnersley Church, Herefordshire

St. James’ Church in Kinnersley is a most unusual looking structure. It dates to the 12th Century, but the majority of the structures that remain today are two hundred years after that.

The most obviously striking thing about the church is the tower with its saddle-back roof, something quite rare in English churches. This, rather than a spire or castellated tower, makes Kinnersley very distinctive. The tower dates to around 1315 when the south porch of the church was also added.

Inside are some remarkable Jacobean period fittings and monuments. Nearby stands Kinnersley Castle, an equally unusual example of a Herefordshire castle.
