Church of St Mary & St David, Kilpeck, Herefordshire

Roman Church

The Church of St. Mary and St. David is a Church of England parish church at Kilpeck in the English county of Herefordshire, about 5 miles from the border with Wales. It is famous for its exquisite Norman carvings.

The church was built around 1140, and almost certainly before 1143 when it was given to the Abbey of Gloucester. It may have replaced an earlier Saxon church at the same site, and the oval raised form of the churchyard is typical of even older Celtic foundations. Around the 6th and 7th centuries the Kilpeck area was within the British kingdom of Ergyng, which maintained Christian traditions dating back to the late Roman period. The possibility of the site holding Roman and even megalithic remains has been raised, but is unproven.

The plan of the church, with a nave, chancel, and semicircular apse, is typical for the time of its construction, the Norman period. It was originally dedicated to a St. David, probably a local Celtic holy man, and later acquired an additional dedication to Mary from the chapel at Kilpeck Castle after it had fallen into disrepair. The economic decline of the area after the 14th century may have helped preserve features which would have been removed elsewhere. However, it is unclear why the carvings were not defaced by Puritans in the 17th century. The church was substantially repaired in 1864, 1898 and 1962, and its unique features were protected and maintained. The carvings in the local red sandstone are remarkable for the number and fine preservation, particularly round the south door, the west window, and a row of corbels which run right around the exterior of the church under the eaves. The carvings are all original and in their original positions.

I wish I had photographed the whole panel and not just the figure’s head. But now that I’ve learned a little more about Ethiopian Christian Orthodox art from viewers, I’m going to identify this image as "Saint Gebre Menfes Kidus, more popularly known as Saint Abbo, who founded the monastery on Mount Zuqwala (various spellings)."

Why? You might say a little bird told me.

Seriously, though, the elements in this image are virtually identical to those in a painting I photographed in Lalibela. Both paintings depict a man with a flowing beard and odd clothing standing with upraised hands, while a little bird flutters next to his head. It was the bird’s presence in both paintings that made the connection for me.

I like the bird in both paintings, but the odd little creature in the Lalibela version of this image is my favorite because it looks like a penguin hand puppet with little hands.

Flickerite PJBayens kindly identified the figure in the Lalibela painting as Saint Abbo. You can see the Lalibela painting below, together with PJBayens’ full comments.
