St Cadmarch's Church, Llangammarch Wells, Breconshire

Denomination: Anglican

Dedication: St Cadmarch

Built: Early medieval

Rebuilt: 1915-16 by W D Caroe

1. St Ca[d]march's church occupies a spur above the River Irfon, about 11 km south-west of Builth Wells. The original foundation was probably an early medieval one but the present church is a completely new edifice of the early 20thC, built on a new site. It contains nothing from its medieval predecessor other than the old font bowl and an early medieval stone built into the porch. New church built in 1915-16, perhaps with some re-use of earlier masonry.
