SO6631 : St Mary's church, Kempley

taken 7 years ago, near to Kempley, Gloucestershire, Great Britain

St Mary's church, Kempley
St Mary's church, Kempley
Built around 1130 probably replacing an earlier Saxon church.
It's simple plan with an aisleless nave and rectangular chancel is similar to older Saxon churches, but the elaborate decoration of the arches and the tympanum over the south door suggest a wealthy patronage.

The tower was added around 1276 during Edward the First's wars in Wales.
The wooden porch over the south door is "modern" - only 600 or so years old!
