Christ Church Swansea
Christ Church Swansea
Church in Wales church viewed across Oystermouth Road. The foundation stone was laid on June 28th 1871. Because of the shape of the restricted site, the church is unusual in having its altar on the north side, instead of the customary east side. The original bell turret was dismantled long ago because its weight made the walls bulge. The single bell seen here was erected in 1932. It is rung before every main service to call people to worship.
