St Bartholomew's Church, Much Marcle, Herefordshire 25 July 2014
A second casualty of sickness. Traditionally disease has been a bigger killer on campaigns that the enemy. A quote attributed to Field Marshal Slim is "the flit gun is mightier than the sten gun".
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.
