Overview

Visit a true Romanesque relic: an entrance arch of the 1100s, reused as the entrance to a burial vault.

Edrom Parish Church was built on a grant confirmed by King David I some time around 1139. None of that original church survives today, except for its fine entrance arch, which was rebuilt as the entrance to a burial vault, probably in 1732.

The doorway features some remarkable foliate detail in its carved capitals.
