Tregaron – St Caron’s Church

History

The church of St. Caron in Tregaron was erected at the end of the 14th century. At that time, it was a parish temple from which the third part of tithes was handed over to the Strata Florida Abbey. Around 1500 a tower was added. In 1826 and in the years 1878-1879, its thorough renovation was carried out, combined with the addition of the sacristy. Most of the windows were also replaced at the time.

Architecture

The medieval church consisted of a five-span, rectangular nave with no externally separated chancel and a three-story tower from the west. It has an extended pedestal, a parapet on corbels topped with battlement and a north – eastern communication turret. Its ground floor is topped with a barrel vault and opens with an arch to the interior of the nave.
