I came across this church while looking at a map of Llandidrod Wells, it was off the beaten track so to speak and looked to be in the middle of know where as there seemed to be no houses nearby. I checked it out on Geograph to see if any one had good a photo of the church and was pleased to see there was and as I suspected it was sat isolated on the side of a hill quite away from the nearest road.
One Saturday I ventured out to visit the church which dates back to the 13th century but was extensively restored in the 19th century after the vicar of Llandidrod Wells had the roof removed to try to encourage the parishioners to attend the new church that had been built in town. It was unsuccessful and the church was restored in 1895.
Going round the north side
The north wall the nave

This is using the gorillapod on the floor
This one is taken useing the flash on my camera
The altar and rails
At the back of the nave is the font with a couple of memorials on the wall
The roof is in good condition and all the seats have beautifully covered kneelers
The oak rood cross was made and presented by S Edwards Temple Bazaar in December 1985, it was made from the wood taken from the old church
Some of the old photos of the church can be see at the back near the entrance. While this window is one of the few with stained glass
The north wall has this mural of the nativity
and I really liked this lectern decoration
Some are tombs under a yew tree which have become covered in green algie
