St Peters Lugwardine Case

Lugwardine – St Peter’s Church

The Parish Church of St Peter stands near to the middle of the village of Lugwardine and was built in the 12th century. The tower was a later addition in the 15th century.

The organ was built in the late 1800s by Sweetland of Bath and had been restored by F W Hutchins & Co in Hereford. However, the organ was becoming increasingly unreliable and a replacement organ was commissioned.

In 1994, Nicholson & Co built a free-standing organ situated in the South Aisle. The specification was drawn up in conjunction with the then Organist and Master of the Choristers at Hereford Cathedral, Dr Roy Massey. For financial purposes, the old organ remained in the church behind the new instrument but was later removed from the church in 2001.

The carving on the casework depicts the River Lugg and its wildlife.
