Church of St James, Kinnersley - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Sandstone parish church predominantly of the C13 and C14. Noted for a late C19 decorative scheme by GF Bodley. The church is in regular use but the roofs, particularly to the north, are heavily overgrown with mosses and fern growth. The interior shows significant signs of damp, possibly associated with the poor condition of the roof. This is affecting much of the C19 decoration.
