The ruins of the church seen from the graveyard. From this point of view it's visible that the chancel is wider than the nave.


This ruined church with its old and unkept graveyard is at the bottom of a narrow lane, but fortunately in front of the gate to the graveyard there's enough room for a car. The architecture of the building suggests that it was build around the 9th or the 10th century. It measures 9 metres in length and 6 metres in width. It consists of two separate sections, a nave, that is the older part of the church, and a chancel, that was added in the 12th century after the Norman invasion and that is wider than the nave. The chancel was lit by two small yet nice windows, and is aligned to the east (97°). The wall at the west end is 70 centimetres thick.
It seems that the church was dedicated to St. Brigid, and according to some sources she herself might have founded it in the early 6th century, though the original building is, of course, no longer existing.
