Llanvihangel Gobion – St Michael’s church

History

It is not known exactly when the church was built in Llanvihangel Gobion, it is most often dated back to the 15th century, but its beginnings can reach the 13th century, as evidenced by the harsh look of the squat tower.

Architecture

The church was built of gray sandstone. It consists of a four-span nave and a non-distinguished externally, two-span chancel, under a common gable slate roof. From the west to the nave is added a small, squat tower topped with a hip roof. From the north, a second, small nave was added, and from the south a fifteenth-century porch at the entrance. The southern side of the nave is distinguished by an avant-corps with the rood screen inside.
