St Garmon’s Church is part of the Church in Wales and nestles in the heart of the village of Castle Caereinion behind the Red Lion public house.

“A church is known to have existed on this site since 1254, although the present Church of St Garmon is probably the third. It was built in 1866 in the Early English perpendicular gothic style and consists of a nave, chancel, vestry, porch and tower with broach-spire. It is constructed from squared green rubble stone with limestone dressings under a slate roof.” – Church Heritage Cymru
