A good example of a medieval Glamorgan country church. It was sensitively restored in 1867 by the local Romilly family with minimum interference to the existing fabric.
When removing the old chancel arch at that date a skeleton and pewter chalice were discovered buried underneath.
On the north wall is a fine 17th-century early incised grave slab to Reynolde Portrey.
Entry into the church is on the flat. We have a ramp inside to allow access to the area under the bell tower. Regular-sized wheelchairs and walking frames fit perfectly, but the church is small and the aisle narrow so a large motorised scooter may struggle to turn into the main aisle from the door.
Car parking is available outside the church.
The local bus, 304, stops around a 10-15 minute walk away. Rhoose railway station is a 30 minute walk away, or take the airport bus from the station. It is a 20 minute walk from the airport.
