The Malt Shoven Inn
Nearby ChurchesThe church of St John the Baptist is to be found at one of the highest parts of the Forest of Dean. Spectacular views are afforded from the church, which dates from 1111AD. The Lady Chapel consists of the original building with the larger nave, chancel, tower and spire being 14th century additions. The twoer commands sweeping views of the Wye Valley and Welsh Mountains, and trips up to the battlements can be arranged for visitors.
In a field nearby are the remains of an old manor house, known locally as The Castle, which was reputedly destroyed during the Civil War by Cromwellian troops. Outstanding features of the church consist of a carving of the Virgin Mary over the south porch and a tympanum representing St. George and the Dragon above the south door. This is dated to the 12th century and was carved by the Hereford School of Sculpture. In the bell tower there is a painting of the tympanum and inserted in the wall to the left of the front door, is a small carving of fish also dating from the 12th century. This carving was lost to the church for 800 years, rediscovered in a local cottage in 1985 and returned to its original home.Deprecated: mysql_escape_string(): This function is deprecated; use mysql_real_escape_string() instead. in /var/www/vhosts/fweb.org.uk/httpdocs/classes_system/generaldata.class.inc on line 613
