I have started to notice that church steeples really do vary from area to area. Which is logical since they serve no real purpose and once one church added a steeple the nearby churches aspired to one too. Now the steeples in the Brecon Beacons I noted all tend to look like this one on St Edmund’s Church in Crickhowell, unless of course you know different.
Now this church is apparently the only church outside of East Anglia dedicated to St Edmund. It was a lovely church but I was a bit surprised at the lack of a guide book, and on coming home lack of much on their website about this interesting church.
I love the approach through the gate.
Here is the church seen from across the river in Llangattock. The steeple really does present quite a landmark.
The inside was quite big for a little town.
And there is the rather impressive tomb.
There’s the church from the castle.
And here for good measure are two other places of worship in Crickhowell , which sadly weren’t open to the public
in fact this one was padlocked and there were weeds on the footpath so I wondered if it was still in use
and this one.
Joining with Inspired Sunday for some more great religious buildings
