A link to Elgar
Pendock church is seen standing proud above the motorway to Ross-on-Wye. Earthworks in fields north of the church mark the site of a Medieval village and probably the de Pendocks’ manor house.
Much of this charming church is Norman although the 10th-century font suggests an even earlier building; in the 14th-century new windows were added, and the west tower was built. There are lovely 16th-century pews and Jacobean communion rails.
It is thought that the famous English composer Sir Edward Elgar may once have played the lovely little Georgian organ inside.
