Church of St Oudoceus, Llandogo
Church of St Oudoceus, Llandogo
Church in Wales church set back about 60 metres from the A466. Various references spell the name 'Oedoceus' but 'Oudoceus' is shown on the church board at the entrance. The Welsh form of Oudoceus is Euddogwy. Llandogo is a semi-anglicised form of the Welsh name of the village, Llaneuddogwy. Some references state that Oudoceus was the third Bishop of Llandaff, who probably lived in this area in the 6th or 7th century.
The church was built during 1859-1861 on the site of a much earlier church. An unusual feature of the church, seen here, is the pulpit-like bellcote.
