"...this pilgrimage centre about a man, a car and an emotion that it invokes..."
The church of St Peter and St Paul in Stoke Lacy in Herefordshire might mean for most a quiet rural English church. But here at Stoke Lacy, there stands memorials to the innovator of one of the most English of classic cars - the Morgan.
Many a Morgan enthusiast and classic car connoisseur venture to this church just to tip their hat to the family that lived here. To give him his full name, Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan or Harry was born the son of the curate of Stoke Lacy. Intrepid investigators will find evidence of the family here. Harry Morgan would develop the Morgan motor car locally in Malvern, not far from this place.
So if car history or even social history and innovation is your interest, pop by and pay tribute to a man who left his mark. Three-wheeled and then four-wheeled. If you're lucky, you'll see and hear some of those Morgan cars as they tip their metaphorical hat to their lost engineer.
