Ross on Wye - Church of St Mary the Virgin
Although this fine EH Grade I listed church dates originally from the C12th, it was almost completely rebuilt in the following century and was heavily restored in 1878 resulting in it looking at first sight to be Victorian Gothic. The ancient monuments inside it however soon disabuse you of this notion.

St Mary the Virgin, Ross on Wye


Grade I listed

The church consists of a nave with north and south aisles, chancel, a south chapel, north and south porches and a west tower with spire.

The nave, aisles and chancel were built in the late 13th century.
The tower and spire were added in the early 14th century, and the chancel was extended in the mid-14th century.
In 1510 the Markye Chapel was added to the south aisle.

There was a major restoration between 1862 and 1878.

There are several stints and 17th-century monuments to the Rudhall family.
The east window glass is from circa 1430, although the tracery lights are 19th century.
