About

St Catherine's Church is of architectural interest as the parish church, which was built in three phases and designed by three noteworthy local architects.

First built 1883-6 by architect, J Prichard. He did only the first three bays of the nave.

 

Kempson and Fowler added the chancel with the south chapel and north vestry in 1892-3 (foundation stone 1892) and G E Halliday added the two bays of the west end in 1897.

 

Plain Gothic style with Decorated tracery, the three builds are not readily identifiable.

 

The church is faced in thin courses of dark brown Pontypridd stone rubble with Bath stone ashlar dressings, and Welsh slate roofs.

 

The stained-glass windows are by a variety of 20th-century artists including Comper.
