South door, Kilpeck Church

South door, Kilpeck Church
The exuberant carving on the arch and tympanum continues on the columns and elsewhere, especially on the external corbels (all 85 of them). These depict various strange and mythical beings, including a famous Sheela Na Gig (not for family viewing).

The church, built in red sandstone and dedicated to St Mary and St David, dates from around 1134 to 1145, possibly with some Saxon masonry. It was listed Grade I in 1967.

More details here and here. Kilpeck lies nine miles south west of Hereford. Nikon D300.
