St Agatha's Church, Llanymynech
St Agatha's Church, Llanymynech
The parish of Llanymynech lies half in England and half in Wales. The site of the church is a very early foundation and there is evidence of rectors being appointed to the living of Llanymynech since 1254. The present building is at least the third on the site. The previous church building to occupy the site, a double building with a small bell turret at the west end, probably constructed in 1272-1307 of rubble stone and plaster. By the nineteenth century it was in poor repair and it was demolished in 1843. The present church was constructed in Normanesque style, with distinctive arches, pillars and capitals. Local limestone was used for the bulk of the construction with additional ornamentation in terracotta.
