Church of St Mary, Hope under Dinmore - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Small but lengthy parish church on a hillside setting next to the A49. Heavily restored by Kempson in 1877 and 1896, with the small west tower and north chapel still retaining C12 and C13 fabric. The north chapel gable has structural movement and the cast iron gutters are cracked, rusting and leaking. The tower sandstone rubble is heavily eroded and has harmful vegetation growth.
