Interesting, picturesque Norman Church with a distinctive half timbered belfry on top of its tower. It has an unusual ground plan and medieval roof timbers.
Much of the original Norman building remains intact.
Unusual stone reredos in north chapel.
Impressive Victorian stained glass including a window by Thomas William Camm.
Outside is a 14th Century churchyard cross.
When he lived just up the road at Plas Gwyn, Sir Edward Elgar often visited the church and played the fine Nicholson and Lord organ. His Elegy for Strings op 58, was inspired by the view from nearby Mordiford Bridge.
The Wye Valley Walk goes through the village and passes within two hundred meters of the church.
Food and drink available at the ‘Bunch of Carrots’ public house nearby on the B4224.
