InSpired Sunday!

Coming today from St Catwg’s Church in Llangattock, Wales, where I just happened to be this week.

You approach the church through a field of horses.

To a gem of a church

The parish is now relatively small but was once the focal point of a much larger one. This church was founded in the early part of the sixth century. Nothing of this early church remains. The tower is the oldest part and dates to the twelfth century.

Take a look inside.

The font dates to the restoration of the church  in 1886.

The sun was streaming through the windows and I couldn’t get a good shot, but I loved the altar.

And I loved this depiction of the Last Supper.

But most surprising was this….

Yup that is what you think it is Stocks and a whipping post on display in a church.

But the best was last.
