St Giles Church is home to a great collection of stone
carvings. The impressive tower is renowned as one of the seven wonders
of Wales and the external stone work displays a rich and varied
collection of medieval stone carvings. Not surprisingly after 500 years
many of the carvings are looking the worse for wear, and a good number
have been replaced. I wonder who keeps the old ones? Within the church
itself the stone corbels, decorated with armorial shields and a strange
mixture of bishops and devils, are as clear cut as when they were carved
in the 16th Century.
