A late-Mediaeval Catholic Church

We visited St Fagans National History Museum just to the west of Cardiff on Thursday. This is an open-air museum with many period cottages, shops, mills, chapels brought from other locations and painstakingly rebuilt on this site.

A particular joy was St. Teilo's Church, originally at Llandeilo Tal-y-bont which has been reconstructed as it would have appeared in 1530 in all its pre-Reformation coloured splendour.
