St David's Church, Trostrey

Note 1: Built in the Perpendicular Gothic style, gable entry type. A church which appears to be of medieval or earlier foundation, set in its graveyard but isolated from nearby present-day buildings. Ruins and mounds in adjacent fields suggest that it was once associated with a now shrunken village.

Note 2: A small Perpendicular church alone on a the sloping hillside, of grey rubble-stone with pink Old Red Sandstone dressings. Nave and chancel in one. Fine west double bell gable, of ashlar, slightly corbelled out to north and south. Added west porch with arch-brace and wind-brace roof, its south wall slightly overlapping the trefoiled stoup.
