Photographer's Note

Clodock Church in Herefordshire is dedicated to Saint Clydawg King of Ewias who was martyred about 500 AD. The present building dates from the 12th century and is Grade 1 listed.rnThe story goes that King Clydawg was betrothed to be married but a rival murdered him in a fit of jealousy. His body was to be moved to the intended burial place but the cattle refused to cross the river so he was buried by the river bank. That night flames were seen coming from the grave and the Bishop ordered an oratory to be built and later a small wooden church. It became a place of pilgrimage.rnSome more pictures in the workshop
