The original St Peter's Church dates from the 13th Century and was situated a short distance from the current Church which was consecrated in 1880. The red brick building just behind the Church, now a private home, was originally a school, which my mother attended.

You're falling down on the job, Lorna - you have to visit every pub in Gloucestershire! Hee-hee!

I've been to Stow on the Wold, but not to that pub Jan!

This is such a wonderful old church! I saved this picture to my files! Thank you very much Lorna for the great picture and the interesting information.

I agree Ank, and I think it is quite right to be that way too.

Hi Lorna, that's the same it works in NL, they are protected, and indeed if you want to change it takes a long way. Often it has an other use, that's good.

It is such a shame that some of your heritage is lost for ever. Of course, it does happen here too, but probably not much, because so many buildings of historical interest are protected by listed building status / preservation orders, and anyone wanting to alter them have to have their plans assessed and agreed to, and then the work monitored. And places like disused Churches are snapped up to convert to homes. This little Church is still in use, though services are few I believe. It is probably popular for weddings though. It is in a lovely spot up on a hill, just outside the city of Hereford.

The schools my parents went to have long since been destroyed in the name of 'progress.' How I envy your ties to the church and school; even though it's now a private home, the idea that your mother went to school there must be a comforting one for you. One of the things I love most about England is that villages and towns are not eager to destroy their old buildings; re-purpose them, of course if necessary, but not destroy! I'm sure you have your share of destruction, but nothing on the sheer scale that we have it in the US. There is no going back, no family tie, no touchstone for too many of us.

Thank you Ank. I'm glad you like it.

It's a beautiful Church lorna. I like the way the build it with the two colors stone. I can't see much of the school but what I see looks nice too. It's nice to have good feelings with such a special place. Thanks you for showing and telling.

You are welcome fodus. This little Church has numerous family connections, so it is quite a special place for me. Thank you for your interest.
