Long Description:
From the (visit link) website:
Rock, near Kidderminster, is a fine church of Norman origin which holds some of the best remaining examples of the Herefordshire school of carving. It was built around 1150 by Roger de Tosny, the grandson of Ralph of Normandy who was standard-bearer to William the Conqueror at Hastings.

The nave and chancel are Norman but the south aisle and tower date from 1510. Restorations were carried out in 1861, 1881 and early in c20. The construction is of stone blocks (“ashlar”).

The font is also c12 Norman with attractive stylised “flower petal” motifs. It is very different from other fonts of the Herefordshire school found in places like Eardisley and Chaddesley Corbett which are adorned with fantastic carvings.
