Church of St Michael, Croft Park, Croft and Yarpole - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Small parish church set next to Croft Castle on a National Trust site. Small sandstone rubble nave and chancel with a slate roof mostly from a 1515 rebuilding. The west end was remodelled in late C17 with an ogee capped cupola. The cupola leadwork has fallen off and been replaced with a temporary felt covering. However, the felt has a short lifespan and urgent replacement of the lead is still required.
