All Saints, Ladbroke
The earliest parts of the building date from the 12th century with many later additions.
The use of contrasting layers of stone on the tower adds interest to the building’s fine appearance. This is complemented by the peaceful churchyard setting. On the south side of the chancel are some fine seats for the clergy (sedilia) with beautifully carved canopies. There is also a curious low window in the chancel, sometimes called a “Lepers Window”, although it is doubtful if this reflects its real purpose.
On the outside wall of the south aisle there appear to be traces of Mass Dials, used to notify times of services.
Britains greatest mediaeval experience!
