Just a few minutes out of your day to visit this quaint little church is well worth it. A beautiful little building, with wonderful interior, and a real live saint buried the yard.

Plenty to see in this church of the former priory. Currently being rennovated but this does not interfere with your visit. Well worth a look while you are in Usk.

Most of the reviews below are for Abergavenny- which Im sure is beautiful - but this is Usk. When you are in USK, ask about Adam of Usk and his memorial. He was very significant in British medieval history and it's crazy not more is...More

A lovely parish church, in a lovely little town. Worth a visit whilst in Usk. Nothing outstanding in the church worth a mention.

Can't comment on the inside as there was a funeral. The outside is very impressive. Good condition building. Nice grounds. Good photo opportunity
