King's Caple
King's Caple
The church of St (Saint) John the Baptist stands high here on the western edge of the village. The fabric of the church stretches from the 13th to the 15th century and it looks out to the west to Hoarwithy SO 5429 on the right bank of the Wye and to the south to Sellack SO 5627. On Palm Sunday it was, maybe still is, to give out Pax Cakes to the congregation with the words 'Peace and Good Neighbourhood'. This was said to be one of the three Herefordshire parishes where this was done. Time taken not available.
