Ross on Wye - St Mary the Virgin - Chancel
The chancel of the church of St Mary the Virgin in Ross on Wye. The church originally dates from the C12th but was largely rebuilt in the C13th and then modified in the following two centuries, most of the chancel dating from this latter period. There was an extensive (and somewhat heavy-handed) restoration in the Victorian era.

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.
