Thought to be a view of St Mary’s Church in Fownhope, Herefordshire. At 119 feet in length, it is one of the largest parish churches in the county and has a central square Norman tower. The window in the tower dates from the Norman period and the twin windows to one side of the tower are bell openings. The tower was modified in the 15th century when a spire made from oak shingle was added. In the 19th century the spire was restored and much of the shingle was replaced. The tower houses six bells. Inside the church there is a chancel, nave, south aisle and a chantry.
