Details

The redundant church of St Jerome’s is renowned for its late 15th-century screen, one of the finest in southern Wales.

The 19th-century restoration was carried out between 1863 and 1878 and supervised by J.P. Seddon.

The early medieval ‘Green Men’ of St Jerome’s are also of exceptional interest, not least of all for their fine carving. It was these carvings which lead to the first coining of the name ‘Green Man’ in the 1930s by Lady Raglan. Prior to this, they had simply been known as “foliate heads”.
