Legacy of Bateman-Shobdon, Herefordshire
Legacy of Bateman-Shobdon, Herefordshire
An interior view of the gallery at Shobdon parish church. The original church, in what some consider an act of 18th century vandalism, was demolished by Viscount Bateman and this replacement built retaining the 13th century tower. All that remains of the old church are the Shobdon Arches away to the north, well-weathered now after a couple of centuries and more of wind and rain, placed there to enhance the park. A visit to Kilpeck church (SO 4430) will give an idea of what may have been lost. The building was Grade I listed on 11th June 1959. Time taken 11.10 am BST (British Summer Time).
