I'm not best placed to appreciate churches. But there's some little interest in this small building if you're nearby. It's without aspiration and unusual as it's concrete (1930's) built and designed by an Italian. That's very unusual in a Welsh speaking area of Wales. From...More

This church built in 1937 by local boat builders is in the form of an upside down hull, it closed in 2005 but was restored and re-opened in 2011, it is unusual in its outside design and exquisite and simple inside. Open on Tuesdays only,...More
