St Mary

The distinctive appearance of the church in this village near the River Severn is due mainly to the contrasting balustrade top section of the tower.

About this church

Inside, the highlight is the choir stalls, installed for the canons of Ripple's mother church, Worcester Priory, who would have taken services here.

The set of 16 misericords is a medieval country calendar, depicting the labours of the months and the four elements, including a charming one of the man in the moon.
