Immediately adjacent to Skenfrith Castle is this pretty church with large buttress support and an unusual square wooden clock tower. It is an impressive sight and the interior is similarly interesting. The structure dates from the 13th century and is usually open and free to...More

A part-wooden towered Church with many interesting artefacts inside. Some wall paintings, including two large panels covering the Ten Commandments to either side of the main medieval stained glass window. The columns and arches holding up the roof (a renovated barrel roof) are quite noticeable...More

We stumbled across this beautiful church when we stopped at The Bell of Skenfrith more or less opposite, desperately in need of lunch. We were actually on our way to White Castle. After we'd eaten and were exploring the castle ruins, we heard the church...More

A unique historical church in a beautiful Welsh border village situated right next to the castle ruins and River Monnow. Contains an example of a 500 year old medieval embroided cope (cape).

A pretty little church with a very long history. Not a great deal to see, so ten minutes or so will see you outside again.

A lovely looking building with church bells chiming every 15 minutes. The churchyard is well kept and the church itself if so quaint and lovely. Well worth a visit to see the Skenfirth Cope.

Must be one of the oldest Churches in the area dating back several centuries. Virtually next door to the castle ruin. Easy parking - well worth a visit

There's are a couple of old box pews lurking in corners but the church looks well-used and well-loved. I liked the window over the altar.

There is plenty of history within St Bridget's Church, staring at the huge old door and continuing around the church itself. An interesting display lists the names of those engraved on the War Memorial at the roadside, together with personal information on the men who...More

Set within a charming cluster of cottages this 800 year old rural church was originally built as both a physical and spiritual sanctuary - hence the castle like solid stone construction. Of particular note is the unusual squat timber belfry. The interior, devoid of the...More
