The Nave

The nave

The church is a rectangular chamber with no structural divisions between the aisles and the chapels at the east end. The arcading consists of seven bays which do not extend to the east wall. The Clestory windows add greatly to the lightness of the church.

The High Altar & Screen

The screen which separates the nave from the chancel is fifteenth century, probably from the Ludlow workshop. The wainscoting, and the fan vaulting which is further ornamented by liernes, make it one of the finest screens in Wales.
