St Mary's Church

St Mary’s Priory Church

There are many wonderful little churches dotted in and around Abergavenny, each with their own unique character. Just a few miles away is the crooked church of Cwmyoy, a church whose spire is leaning over at a dramatic angle. Close to Cwmyoy is Llanthony Abbey, mostly ruined but with a large number of arches still standing. Turner painted here, and also at Tintern Abbey, one of the most complete ruins of a medieval abbey in Britain.

St Mary’s Priory Church is the parish church which serves the community of Abergavenny. It is one of the largest churches in Wales.
