I think it’s safe to say that St Mary Magdalene’s at Eardisley is a church with one really stand out artefact - the font.
Herefordshire has many notable churches and it is easy to get overwhelmed with the fascinating architectural details at Kilpeck and Abbeydore to the south of the county, but Eardisley does hold a gem that matches them...but it is *a* gem, so don’t bank on a long visit. The rest of the village is attractive with its black-&-white houses, so it’s worth a trip.
Anyway, the font is 12th century and carved in the Romanesque style of the Hereford School of carving. It depicts the Harrowing of Hell, a lion, and a duel between (it says) Sir Baskerville and another Knight. So the story goes, Sir Baskerville won and many years later, Arthur Conan-Doyle stayed at nearby Hergest Croft, heard a folk story of Black Vaughan the phantom hound, put 2 & 2 together and that’s history. Whether this is true...dunno, but it’s a good story.
The church has some cards to read about the font which are useful, although I suspect the haloed figure with a book is meant to be St Peter not God as the cards suggest.
Anyway, for those with an interest in Norman sculpture this is a must.

On the black and white village trail, one should not miss the visit to St Mary Magdalene church in Eardisley, to view the Eardisley font of c.1150, arguably one of the best Romaneque fonts in England.

The stone font was built like a truncated hour-glass, with a short circular base supporting a wide circular bowl. The carvings of intricate figures, vines and foliage were by sculptors from the herefordshire school. A man was pursued by a lion (evil) and saved by Christ.

One of Herefordshire's Many Superb Churches-and all free
The greatest Must See is the fantastic font- one of Europe's greats!
The only downside is the situation of the building, just off one of Herefordshire's busiest village high streets,(visit at the weekend when traffic is calmer).
