Single chamber with one N side 12-pane sash window, two to S and one to E end, all with Gothic tracery to upper panes and cambered heads to upper sashes, slate sills and blue lias cut stone cambered voussoirs. W end has flattened arched doorway into inset porch with similar inner doorway and plank door. Bellcote of rusticated blue lias ashlar, two openings with elliptical arched heads and concave curved gable above. [A very similar bellcote was at Eglwyswrw before the 1883 rebuilding].

At E end mid C19 Bath stone armorial plaque in fireplace-like surround, beneath c1850 memorial to T. Lloyd of Cwmgloyne.

Interior

Remarkable, little altered, early C19 church interior with plastered walls, slate floors, box pews, three-decker pulpit and simple timber chancel rails and altar table. 3-sided boarded roof of 1905. At W end, walling is advanced to line of inner porch with flat (apparently non-functional) top, and W door is flanked by matching arched recesses.

Reasons for Listing

Grade II* as a scarce rural example of an unaltered anglican church of its date.
