Free Chapel Hodgeston

12th March 2012
The next Friends of the friendless churches church visited was the Free Chapel at Hodgeston.
The original church was thought to be built in the 13th Century although the imposing tower was added at a later date. By the 1850s however the church had fallen into disrepair and the Cambrian Archaeological Association decided that it should be restored. The architect David Brandon was appointed to do the work and the present windows were added although many of the internal features were preserved.

The elaborate floor tiling in the chancel are thought to be by Minton and include the heraldic arms of the incumbent at the time of the restoration, Rector Thomas.
