|Description ||Kilpeck is covered in the most beautifiul and intricate Saxo-Norman-Scandinavian sculpture
|These are amazing, but they all look so NEW! Have they been restored recently, and is Kilpeck the most decorated church you've ever seen? The best one I have ever visited was Rosslyn Chapel near Edinburgh.|
|Yes - Kilpeck is the most decorated church that I know of - the whole building is covered in writhing creatures and battling warriors. The famous "sheela" is the least of them, but the most famous. The unknown artist/sculptor also did some fantastic work at nearby Eardisley (my poor attempt at a copy in wood can be seen in our Art Gallery)|
