Kilpeck

Kilpeck is a small village in Herefordshire, England. It is about 9 miles (14 km) southwest of Hereford, just south of the A465 road to Abergavenny, and about 5 miles (8 km) from the border with Wales.

It is renowned for its small but outstanding Norman (Romanesque) church, SS Mary and David's, but also has the earthworks of a Norman motte and bailey castle, no longer standing.
