Moccas Church is a very special Norman three celled apsidal Church, built in 1130 AD by the same masons who built Kilpeck Church. It is made of tufa and is intact, with a Norman font and two Norman doorways, and some fourteenth century stained glass.
The ground plan of the church has not changed in nearly 1000 years. The church is Grade 1 listed and is included in Simon Jenkins’ 1000 Best Churches. It has been in continuous use since it was built.
Moccas church organ is of high quality; design and construction by RW Walker in 1871, installed by the Rector, Reverend Sir George Cornewall of Moccas Court.
The casing of the Moccas church organ was designed by George Gilbert Scott Junior and painted by Thomas Kempe. George Gilbert Scott also created the church pews in the nave and the returned stalls in the chancel.
The organ is in need of restoration and quotes for the work are in the region of £60,000. This seems an immense figure but the organ is part of a special heritage which we hope to preserve for future generations.
