St Bartholomew's Church, Much Marcle, Herefordshire 25 July 2014

St Bartholomew's Church, Much Marcle, Herefordshire 25 July 2014
Something of an anomaly; adjacent family graves have the spelling "Fortey" and there are two Forteys on the WW1 memorial in the church. Curiously, the only J (Josiah) Fortey on the memorial is listed on it as Labour Corps.
The church is principally 13th and 14th Century, but a church was sited here, or near here at the time of the Norman Conquest. The tower dates from the 15th Century. It is an extremely grandiose church, especially for the small size of the parish, and has been dubbed a "mini cathedral". It is very well endowed with effigies and other ecclesiastical items.
