Arts & Crafts churches are not common. In Wales they are even more of a rarity so the Church of St. Mark in Brithdir (near Dolgellau) is worth a visit. It is made all the more special by being one of 50 churches saved from...More

We would never have found this if it were not for our innkeepers telling us where it was along the Torrent Walk. Lovely inside, unexpected Tuscan colours and beautiful copper altar. Well worth an explore. Apparently the bats are very active in the churchyard and...More
