St Llwchaiarn's Church, Llanllwchaiarn, Montgomeryshire

St Llwchaiarn's Church, Llanllwchaiarn Denomination: Anglican

Dedication: St Llwchaiarn

Built: 1815
Enlarged: 1864

Notes:
1. St Llwchaiarn's church on the northern side of the River Severn, less than one mile from Newtown, is a red brick structure which was built in 1815 in Georgian style on the site of an earlier church; there were further renovations and an eastern chancel and vestry were added in 1864 in Gothic style. Inside there are a few 18th century monuments and a carved effigy of 1630, but relatively little has survived from the predecessor of the present building. The large churchyard encapsulates two earlier phases of enclosure, but little in the way of early gravemarkers.

2. The brick nave of 1815 has a tower, 18th century wainscoting and a tablet of 1774.
