Grade II(star) listed Church of St Barrwg, Bedwas
Grade II(star) listed Church of St Barrwg, Bedwas
The early medieval church is on high ground at the northern end of Church Street.
It is a Church in Wales church in the parish of Bedwas, Diocese of Monmouth.
Grade II(star) listed in 1961.
Barrwg (or Baruc) was a 6th century disciple of Saint Cadoc. Giraldus Cambrensis (Gerald of Wales) in his Itinerarium Cambriae (Journey through Wales) of 1191 stated that the Barry (at that time a hamlet, now a large town in the Vale of Glamorgan) derived its name from Baruc whose remains are deposited in a chapel on Barry Island.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
