Hoarwithy

Towns and Villages in or near Ross-on-Wye


Description

The attractive village of Hoarwithy is dominated by the remarkable Italianate Church of St Catherine. The original church, built in 1840 by Reverend Thomas Hutchinson, was a simple rectangular stone structure.  When William Poole became vicar in 1854 he was not impressed and decided to beautify it
using sandstone in a Romanesque style. The church has since been used in many films and is an unusual, eye catching landmark.
