Scans from photos taken in 1992 when I was organist at the church in the village of Ripple (near Upton on Severn). I don't think there was one upright wall in the place though I believe they have done some work on it since then. It was my first organist post and I loved the place!

I like this image a lot.
The church had a 1600's look to it. When was it built???
This photo coupled with the interior shot make for a terrific entry.
I hope you and Stephen will have a happy weekend

"St Mary's is the biggest medieval church in Worcestershire. The tower, transepts, nave and aisle date from the late 12th century and represent the transition from Norman to Early English architecture. The chancel was rebuit in the 13th century and has fine lancet windows and a superb collection of 15th century misericords, carved locally and depicting seasonal village activities. The west window is by Charles Eamer Kempe and there is also a memorial window to Brigadier Peter Young, the Founder of "The Sealed Knot". Simon Jenkins thinks this is one of England's 1000 best churches."
