St Michael’s Church, Llanyblodwel by 


St Michael’s Church is situated within the village of Llanyblodwel, in a very rural and picturesque setting. The village is located six miles south of Oswestry and a mile from the Welsh border and lies within the lower end of the Tanat valley.

The site of Llanyblodwel church is one of the earliest holy sites in Britain, believed to be 1700 years old. The current church was built by the Normans on the Welsh side of Offa’s Dyke around 1160 AD. However the shape and character of the Church owes much to the work of Rev’d John Parker in the 1840s. The outside is noted for its domical tower which encompasses the belfry. The many visitors to the Church are attracted by the interior. The wooden screen, the square paneled ceiling and above all the ornate passages of scripture written on the painted walls. Visitors find it a place of peace and tranquillity

  • Thank you, I will be posting a couple of interior shots soon.
    It’s a really unusual little church in a tiny village, with a great pub, by the river.
    Peace and quiet reign supreme
