Summary Description

The Grade II Victorian Church of St Garmon is situated in the centre of the village of Castle Caereinion in the old county of Montgomeryshire. It is set in the embanked area of Twmpath Garmon (a scheduled ancient monument), the castle built in 1156 by Madoc ap Maredudd, King of Powys. A church is known to have existed on this site since 1254, although the present Church of St Garmon is probably the third. It was built in 1866 in the Early English perpendicular gothic style and consists of a nave, chancel, vestry, porch and tower with broach-spire. It is constructed from squared green rubble stone with limestone dressings under a slate roof.
