Site Description


St Cadoc's church, Llangattock Lingoed, is built in the Gothic Perpendicular style, long-wall entry type, a prominent feature being the integral tower. Currently in use.

P.C.Tomlins, RCAHMW, 12.12.2002.

The church has been extensively repaired, particularly the roof, following near collapse of the south wall. A wall painting on the south wall of the nave, believed to depict St. George slaying a dragon and dating from the early fifteenth century, was revealed during repair work. One interpretation of the painting is that it represents the English defeating the Welsh, as the last of Owain Glyndwr's unsuccessful battles were fought in the locality at Campston Hill in 1404 and Grosmont in 1405.

B.A.Malaws, RCAHMW, 24 April 2007.
