ST MARTIN’S, CWMYOY
As our picture shows, nothing is quite vertical at St Martin’s, hence the title ‘the most crooked church in Great Britain’. The church is mostly 13th century in origin, however the windows date from the 16th century.
St Martin’s is famous for the Cwmyoy Cross which was stolen from the church in 1967 and was located in a London antique shop after being recognised by the Keeper of Sculpture at the British Museum, and returned to the church.
The church has a fine collection of tombstones and memorials carved by the famous monumental mason family – the Brute’s.
Simon Jenkins in an article for The Guardian in 2006 describe Cwmyoy as his church of the year. Why not make Cwmyoy your church of the year by visiting us.
