St Cadoc’s Llancarfan


St.Cadoc’s Church, Llancarfan, is Grade I listed as an exceptionally fine example of a medieval parish church with many surviving medieval features.


During recent conservative repairs, the project Architect discovered signs of an exceptional and previously unknown medieval wall painting. Whilst only small areas are visible at present, the principal subject appears to be the largest known painting of 'St.George and the Dragon' in Wales, and is possibly amongst the largest and best preserved in Britain.


The practice has also been involved in understanding the significance of nine medieval timber 'canopies' mounted behind the high altar. These finely carved canopies are of exceptional interest due to their high quality and unique details.
