Church of St Andrew, Wolferlow - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

St Andrew's is an early C12 church restored in 1863 by Kempson. It is constructed from stone under a roof of mixed concrete and clay tiles with timber framed tower and shingle spire. The church has not been used for worship since 2006. The churchyard is maintained and in use but the building is showing signs of significant neglect. Rainwater goods are absent, the roof is in poor condition and there are signs of structural movement in the walls. The building is to be offered for sale; planning permission was granted for re-use as a dwelling but has lapsed.
