Clee St Margaret

St Margaret    Ludlow,  SY8 3HF

St Margaret's stands in an attractive village high on the slopes of Brown Clee Hill.

The church is small, just a nave and chancel with a western belfry (probably added in the17th century) the chancel a little earlier than the nave.

The priest's door (right) is probably early Norman. 



The most striking feature of the church is the extensive herringbone masonry in the walls of the chancel.This picture shows the east wall with its lancet window. 





The narrow chancel arch with its Jacobean doors. The pulpit is also Jacobean. Note the hagioscopes or 'squints' either side of the arch.









The font is a plain  Norman tub on a modern stem.
