The tympanum at Rowlestone.

Rowlestone (also spelled Rowlstone) is a village and parish in the hundred of Ewyas Lacy in Herefordshire. It is a rural area with agriculture the main source of employment, and had only 87 residents in 2004, increasing to 180 at the 2011 Census.[1]

It is notable mainly for the Norman parish church of St Peter, which contains some distinguished carvings, including a tympanum showing Christ in Majesty with four attendant angels. These carvings are of the same distinctive Herefordshire School as those at the nearby Church of St Mary and St David, Kilpeck.
