About half a mile from the village itself, perched high above the Wye Valley south of Monmouth, is the unpretentious but charming Penallt Old Church. To whom it was dedicated is not known, but it is thought to be Saint James who was patron saint to pilgrims. First mentioned in a Diocesan document from around 1200, the current building dates from medieval times, the best clue to the year being the carving on the door which says 'Anno 1539'.
