Pendine – St Margaret’s Church

History

   St. Margaret’s church was erected probably in the 13th century, when a nave was founded. In the fourteenth century, the chancel was added, and in the fifteenth a porch. Around 1600, a western tower was built. In the nineteenth century, the Victorian renovation of the temple was carried out, during which the sacristy was added, the windows in the nave and chancel arch were replaced.

Architecture

   The church consists of a three-bay nave on a rectangular plan, a narrower two-bay chancel, also on a rectangular plan, porch on the south side, a three-story tower on the west side and a modern sacristy added to the north wall of the presbytery. The oldest preserved window from the 14th century is located in the eastern wall of the chancel. The windows on the north and south side are dated to the 15th century.
