A double column on the South Door, Kilpeck Church, Herefordshire, England, Great Britain
Kilpeck Church, Herefordshire.

The outer columns on the South Door have carvings of a series of snakes with their heads swallowing their tails.The inner left column has two warriors who are in loose trousers which, apparently, is unusual. Again the detail on these carvings is astonishing.

Corbels, Kilpeck Church, Herefordshire, England, Great Britain
Kilpeck Church, Herefordshire.

This shows a few of the 85 corbels around the roofline. It is interesting to note that the ibex's head is upside down compared to the rest and I don't know if there is any significence in that. I thought at first that the ibex was a pig but if you look carefully you will see that it has horns.

The interior showing the archway into the Chancel. This arch and its columns are also richly carved but much less so than the South Door.

The arch into the Apse is plain but the ribs in the Apse do have some simple carvings.

This view of the castle is from the churchyard and, as you can see, the Motte (grassed mound) is preserved but very little else.
