St David's Church, Llanthony

Details

Accessibility:

There is a fair sized, flat, gravel car park at the entrance of Llanthony Priory which also serves St David's Church. A small section of hard-standing is freely available for parking during quieter times. Pathways around the church are a mix of gravel, grass and hardcore but shouldn't cause too much trouble for all visitors. The entrance (where there is a step down of nearly 5 inches) to the church is easily accessible from the car parks and the road.   


Brief description:

St David's is a 12th century structure located in the Diocese of Monmouth, standing in the shadows of Llanthony Priory. The church is compact in size but is easily accessible via wheelchair if required. The path to the church is paved and the road leading up to it is also easy to navigate. Although the church is in a quiet, remote, beautiful part of the country, don't be surprised or alarmed when fighter jet planes suddenly appear overhead for training flights.

The font inside the church is medieval and the bell which is clearly visible from the outside, dates back to 1792.
