Kington, St Mary

The Kington Parish Church of St Mary [listing] is located on a hill in the north of this small market town beside Church Road. There is some parking space in a lane on the west side of the church.

The church is on the top of a hill with attractive churchyard surrounding the top of the hill. The ringing room is reached by climbing a stone staircase on the east face of the tower. The room is not as large as you might expect looking at the tower from outside, thick walls! There are two sizable windows on the south and west faces and a ladder leading to the bells on the east face beside the entrance. That said, there is plenty of space to sit several ringers in addition to those ringing.
