St Michael, Llanfihangel tor y Mynydd, Monmouthshire, Wales - 27th September 2004

Not planning to visit this building, we followed several large tourist signs from the main road until we arrived at this delightful little church only to find it locked with no local key holder!  This isn't really good enough for a church with so much signage attracting visitors.  It is impossible to plan visits in advance to accurate timings (anyway how do you know who to contact before you arrive and read the note on the door?!).  The 'sorry for any disappointment' notice on the door only rubbed salt into the wound.

We made the best of it though and had a cup of coffee from our thermos sitting on the old foundation steps of the long vanished churchyard cross in the lovely September sunshine - there is a photo of us in my photo album.

Here is a view of the porch and bell turret.

Here is a shot of the interior taken through the east window - better than not seeing the interior at all!
