St Marks’ Brithdir Wales.

This early C20th arts and crafts influenced church struggles to find a congregation in an extremely rural situation. However the somewhat austere exterior in granite and slate infuenced by Welsh castle and, it seems to me, the in-vogue architect of the time Edwin Lutyens; is countered by the warmth the interior brings to the eye and soul. The use of copper in the altar and pulpit bring this about, a metal warm to look at and heat bearing to the touch. Also the form and colour of the end wall behind the altar are so carefully rounded to contrast the grey rock outside and in the mountains all around the village
