Looking across the Garreg-ddu Viaduct to the Foel valve tower from the church.
Nantgwyllt Church dates from 1903, when the building was completed. It replaced a much earlier church which was buried beneath the reservoirs when the valleys were flooded to provide water for Birmingham.
The font was plain but stylish. I disturbed a young family with their daughter and family dog, who were cleaning the church as there is to be a wedding there this week.
These four sculptures were designed by the architect for the entire project, Stephen W Williams, and depict himself, water engineer James Mansergh, Secretary of the Water Department Anthony Lees and
Alderman Lawley Parker, Chairman of Birmingham City Council Water Committee. All those whiskers!
This homily was on the lecturn.
HERE is a link to more information about the church and photographs of its surroundings.
Worst photo ever - Wall Butterfly. Guess who left the camera on scenery?!!
