    Kilpeck church is an exceptionally fine example of a small Norman (Romanesque) church with few features which detract from its original form. It dates from the middle of the 12th century and is one of a number associated with the so-called Hereford School of masons - this being the best and most complete example. The south doorway, with motifs deriving from the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, is the most remarkable part. However, the corbels under the roof have a more down-to-earth feel, depicting little directly connected with religion. Even if you never see another small Norman church in England, have a look at this one.
