Llanfihangel Crucorney – St Michael’s church

History

St. Michael’s church in Llanfihangel Crucorney was probably founded in the 12th or 13th century as the successor of the earlier chapel from Mount Skirrid. In the nineteenth century, the nave fell into disrepair. Unfortunately, instead of renovation, its walls have been largely dismantled and erected again. Together with them, the original oak roof truss was destroyed, which was replaced with a temporary roof. The current windows were introduced at the end of the 19th century.

Architecture

The original church consisted of a rectangular nave built of red, rough sandstone. In the later period of the thirteenth or the fourteenth century, the chancel was added and still low tower. It was raised to the present height in the 16th century, when the porch was also added from the south side.
