Event: Thursday 26th February 2015.Venue: Hope Church at St David’s, Westbourne Road, Islington.
New Church added - Rhoscrowther, St Decumanus.
Conveyed to the Friends in 1999 this church is remotely situated in the hills of the Brecon Beacons in a big round ancient churchyard.
Of thirteenth century origin it is renowned for its huge fourteenth century screen with loft painted blood red. The panels above have small quatrefoil openings to allow a view from the loft to the high altar to the east. The altar rails are of seventeenth century date and the church possesses a fine run of simple evocative monuments. Nearby is Llanelieu Court, an enigmatic medieval house which the church originally served.
As at so many of our churches the local people here regularly use the church for meetings and concerts - in particular Llanelieu features in the Talgarth Festival.
