follow url The church and churchyard at Felton is beautifully cared for.

online resumes This church was erected on the site of a previous one and was opened on 29th October 1854 by the Lord Bishop of Hereford.

By 1891  it had become evident that a great many repairs were needed to keep the church in good condition, and thankfully the patrons of the benefice at the time, the Messrs. Wood, came forward with the money to enable work to begin.

The church was completely renovated and repaired, and an organ chamber was added.

It features what at the time was a new principle, that is a peal of bells which can be rung by one person.
