On Sunday 16 January 2011, Tim Hughes gave us a fascinating account based on his book Wales 100 Best Churches.
Did you know that there are virtually no English built churches in Wales?
Their patrons were all either Welsh or Norman, and the style is distinctive. Did you know that Margaret, mother of Henry V11, Welsh Henry Tudor, gave birth to him at the tender age of 13? And she had already been widowed twice? Perhaps those Tudor monarchs owe some of their wisdom, power and drive to young Margaret.
Tim’s whirlwind tour of Wales brought together landscape, church architecture, history and geography in riveting fashion. Hurry out and buy his book!
