St John the Evangelist

Whites and blues dominate the colour scheme and there are ogee arches everywhere.

About this church

There is a three decker pulpit, pews with Gothicky bench ends, and a large private pew for the family of the estate, complete with large fireplace.

Of the Norman church that stood here before all that remains are the 'Shobdon Arches', reerected fragments of carving put up when the church was being done up in the 18th century. They are very weatherworn now but were once among the best work of their kind by the Herefordshire School of mason/sculptors.
