14th century tower of St. Lawrence’s Church, Weston-Under-Penyard. St. Lawrence was one of the seven deacons of Rome in the 3rd century. The Prefect of Rome ordered him to hand over the treasures of the church, whereupon he gathered the sick and poor in his care and said, ‘These are the Treasures of the church’. The legend says he was roasted to death on a grid iron as punishment for his defiance. Richard Amerike, one of the two persons reputed to possibly be the person the American continents were named after, was born in Weston-under-Penyard… The other contender to this honour being the Italian Amerigo Vespucci #westonunderpenyard #herefordshire #church #14thcentury #architecture #anericanhistory #romanbritain #tower #architecture (at weston under penyard)
