St Mary Magdalene, Eardisley, Herefordshire
(Click on an image for a larger version)
Like many English villages, Eardisley has a parish church which is an excellent example of a medieval hall. When it was built it would have been used for markets, law courts, theatre and even sport, as well as for religious purposes, because it was the only community building of any size in the village.
This epitaph to a blacksmith is one of our favourite graves. It is a shame that the stone has been so badly damaged. There was a similar epitaph at South Kilworth in Leicestershire.
