St Basil's Church, Bassaleg / Basaleg

Recent Photograph of St Basil's Church (Bassaleg / Basaleg)

Another notably long church, but here with a south aisle and a north chapel to the chancel. The tower is of some antiquity, the rest a mixture of Tudor, Georgian and Victorian work. The Morgans of Tredegar House have the mortuary chapel, a sort of north transept with an eastern chapel extension by Caroe having a fancy arcade to the chancel. The monuments are not quite as grand as their house. A whole host of hatchments too.
