A lovely parish church, in a lovely little town. Worth a visit whilst in Usk. Nothing outstanding in the church worth a mention.

Can't comment on the inside as there was a funeral. The outside is very impressive. Good condition building. Nice grounds. Good photo opportunity

Incredibly preserved graves, tombs, and other medieval artifacts, including a church bell from the 1300's. Free admission, but please give a donation if you can, as they upkeep everything at their cost.

What a lovely church with so much history, would recommend a visit when in Abergavenny. The volunteers there are extremely helpful and its right by the tourist centre.
