Kilpeck Church

As I have explained I am a great fan of bus travel and am blogging about it elsewhere. Yet out in remote Herefordshire, beyond the reach of bus routes, is a special little church at Kilpeck.

 The carvings round the door are original and there is some discussion about their meaning. They might represent Adam and Eve but could be one serpent eating another in the triumph of Good over Evil. If you look carefully you can see the tail of one snake in the mouth of another. The whole site, including the interior of the Church, is full of atmosphere and it is well worth a detour.
