Churches which still retain west gallery features or connections

Capel-Y-Ffin,  St Mary

A chapel of ease to Llanigon. It is one of the smallest in the country, only 8 meters by 4 meters inside. It was built in 1762. There are two tiny galleries, on the west and north walls.

Patrishow,  St Mary In the nave, which is dominated by its finely carved rood screen and west gallery, there are earlier stone side altars and a later pulpit. Eighteenth century religious texts are painted on the walls.

Churches which are known to have had west gallery features or connections

Clyro,  St Michael Included mainly because of the connection with Francis Kilvert and his diary.

Llanigon,  St Eigon

Numbered pews with doors.  The 1857 restoration removed the barrel organ, now restored, to  the west end. The 18th century two-decker pulpit was divided, one half becoming the priest's stall. The 17th century altar and altar rails remain.
