The Old Church, Pendock

Recent Photograph of The Old Church (Pendock)

The Nave and Chancel of Pendock Church were built about 1170. The Tower was added later, in the early part of the 14th century, when it is likely (so the guide leaflet says) to have been built as a refuge in defence against the Welsh. The present windows were cut into the walls during the mid to late 14th century. Before that evidence of early windows is restricted to just one, high up in the south east corner of the east end of the Nave.

Curiously, the Church has no known dedication. It has been in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust since 1987.
