St. Cadoc's Church

Book Tickets Online


The Church of St Cadoc at Llangattock-Vibon-Avel is beautiful building of medieval origin (although only parts of the tower remain from this period) set in the remote countryside of Monmouthshire. It was lavishly restored and redecorated in the late 19th century at the expense of the local Rolls family who owned a lot of the land around Monmouth.

This secluded medieval church with its red sandstone tower looks a little like a fairytale castle. Inside you'll find dazzling stained glass by three Victorian makers at their very best — Lavers & Barraud, Heaton, Butler & Bayne, and C E Kempe. Buried in the churchyard is the Hon. Charles Stewart Rolls, the pioneer aviator, who died in 1910 in a flying accident — the first British aircraft fatality. He was also the joint founder of the Rolls-Royce firm.

This is a redundant church (no longer in use for regular workship) and managed by the Friends of Friendless Churches. Open daily.
