St Matthew, Frome's Hill, Herefordshire

This church was handily sited en route to our next target - so we stopped. Not large, nave with south porch and west bellcote and a chancel with vestry to the north. It is not listed in Pevsner (yet), and is not a listed building (yet). Little information online at all, so the church looks to be 1860s but could be earlier or later. Recently stained glass by Nicola Hopwood has been installed in the apse windows (date of deceased's death 2007) and the original plain panels of quarries still survive in the nave neatly stacked! Any further details gratefully received.

POSTSCRIPT - Thanks to Marion who informs me the church was built 1864-66 to the designs of F R Kempson.
