Church of St Mary, Stoke Edith - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Large parish church, rebuilt by the Foleys of Stoke Edith Park in 1740 in the Palladian style by Henry Flitcroft. The C14 tower with truncated spire was retained. The roof leaks, causing rot in the nave beam and falls in the plasterwork. The ashlar stone facings are eroding severely. A few stones have fallen from the tower and spire.
