Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

This church was founded in 1136. During The Reformation the frescoes were whitewashed over. Since then some of the white wash has been removed. What’s left is a small, beautiful, very well preserved church. I’m so glad we took the advice of another visitor and visited this church. Much of the church is original. Truly a beautiful little church!

This church is in the care of English Heritage and it is a real pleasure to visit it. Inside we found a fascinating collection of wall paintings, including a "Wheel of life" on the north wall. The west door is a well preserved example of 12c woodwork and ironmongery. Well worth a visit by all church lovers.

The tempera wall paintings in the nave are impressive enough, but the chancel's Romanesque frescoes are dazzling, for all that they are shadows of their revelatory glory. The church could occupy an hour, or a day, as takes your fancy, although there was little supporting information and, like so many sites under the "care" of English Heritage, has largely been left to its own devices except for the grass.

The St Mary's church at Kempley is nine-hundred years old, the tower added a hundred years later in the time of Edward 1st's Welsh campaigns. The tempera paintings of the nave and the earlier 12th Century frescoes of the chancel were hidden beneath whitewash during the Reformation. The frescoes depict the Book of Revelation, celebrating the Apostles, the Evangelists and the Lacy family: Baron Hugh de Lacy built the chapel, possibly as a memorial to his father Walter, veteran of the Battle of Hastings and beneficiary of the Norman Conquest.

A group from Hessle U3A visited this church as part of our annual holiday. During the week, we had visited the great cathedrals of Worcester and Hereford but most of our members preferred and were, frankly, moved by this tiny, church in the middle of the country. We were given a fascinating talk on the history of the church and the wall paintings, for which it is so rightly famous, by the Chairman of the Friends of Kempley Churches. There is a pretty churchyard full of wild daffodils in the spring. Next time we shall also visit the arts and crafts church of St Edward, Kempley. We combined our visit with nearby Hellens Manor.
We visited in a 48 seater coach - if you're planning a coach trip, please ask the Friends via the website for directions and parking.

If you have any interest in history you have here an example of customs, beliefs, skills stretching back for a thousand years. Take your time and read a guide - the place is full of amazing interest. We went in March when it was colder inside than outside so take extra clothing.

Travelled about 40 miles just to see this particular church and we were not disappointed.
The grounds were clearly well kept and the church quite unremarkable until walking around to the entrance where one is confronted by a pink and I mean a pink facade! together with a 14c entrance porch that looks on the point of collapse. Inside the building dating back to the 12th century are glorious wall paintings and apparently the oldest timber roof in Britain. The whole place exudes history. How fortunate are we to have these type of buildings on our doorstep.

Wonderful mediaeval and Norman wall paintings are the main attraction . Also probably the oldest church timbers including the doors in England . At first glance it looks a little bit like Garway church with its squat tower with pointy roof and slit windows. It also is done out in pink render like Garway. However you could not have two churches with such completely different atmospheres. St Mary's is full of light and joy.the setting is very peaceful and we felt very welcome to enjoy the sun amongst the yew trees in the churchyard. Second only to Kilpeck on my list of favourite churches in this area.
It is a shame that English Heritage's web page for this church is so lacklustre and sparse. If you want a better impression google Mike Jackson's blog about the treasures of Kempley St Mary's.

Our friends from Canada wanted to see the wild daffodils as well as the wall paintings. Not the easiest place to find, even when you find the village and the sat nav got completely confused on the way out but talk us to a whole wood full of daffodils.
There is another newer church in the village.

If this historic church was located in a larger town or city, it would have many more visitors. However, it is definitely worth a detour to see this ancient church with frescos that have been preserved for centuries.

We were at St Bartholomew's church in Much Marcle visiting the ancient Yew tree when two separate visitors recommended visiting St Mary's. We are very glad we took their advice. Note that it is well off the beaten track, the hunt is worthwhile.
This little church is special for two reasons. Firstly it is an amazing example of ancient architecture with reputedly the oldest timber roof in England. Secondly, the wall frescoes are reputedly the oldest complete frescoes in Northern Europe.
For someone coming from Australia where anything older than 100 is considered old, this church is spine tingling in its age. As well as the beautiful frescoes in their golden and pink hues are little details like the leather in the door frame to stop the door from banging shut, the wooden pegs to hold the roof beams in place in the portico, and the whole log used to make the book box, which is now reinforced with iron straps.
It was a humbling and awe inspiring experience to visit this little church.
