A lovely looking building with church bells chiming every 15 minutes. The churchyard is well kept and the church itself if so quaint and lovely. Well worth a visit to see the Skenfirth Cope.

Must be one of the oldest Churches in the area dating back several centuries. Virtually next door to the castle ruin. Easy parking - well worth a visit

There's are a couple of old box pews lurking in corners but the church looks well-used and well-loved. I liked the window over the altar.

There is plenty of history within St Bridget's Church, staring at the huge old door and continuing around the church itself. An interesting display lists the names of those engraved on the War Memorial at the roadside, together with personal information on the men who died during the conflict, which makes the memorial so much more personal.

Set within a charming cluster of cottages this 800 year old rural church was originally built as both a physical and spiritual sanctuary - hence the castle like solid stone construction. Of particular note is the unusual squat timber belfry. The interior, devoid of the Victorian ornament that was plastered over many churches remains calm and serene. Many of the... More

A peaceful atmosphere in this old church, with interesting artefacts including a Bishop's cope and interesting pulpit of St Bridget.

dating back in part to the early 13th Century. It is a border church so was built to be a place of refuge as well as a place to worship, hence the five feet thick walls and the dovecote roof where stores could be kept and the church could be defended. It's next to Skenfrith Castle.

Lovely medieval church next to Skenrith Castle. Its in a beautiful location and delightful to wander round for a quiet 15 mins. To be honest the exterior is more interesting than the interior but its well worth a visit

St. Bridgets is a superb example of the Early English architectural style with it's earliest constructions built around 1207 in the reign of King John. There have been later additions during the 14th to 17th centuries but fortunately the Victorian 'improvements' that destroyed the soul of many old churches hasn't overly affected this church. There are many interesting old monuments... More

Probably quite interesting for its unusual architecture alone but the inside is nothing special, though I'm sure it is and was for many. Very interesting for historian research along with the castle, but it is in a pleasant area of land, by river, castle and pub. Couple it with a visit to Skenrith Castle (40 yds away)
