The Vicars’ Board

On the west wall of the nave, is an impressive carved board recording all the known Vicars of the parish. Only a few are recorded in the early years when Hartpury was served by monks from the Abbey in Gloucester. It was installed in 1999, and dedicated by the Bishop of Gloucester.
