LLANDYSSIL, St. Tyssil   1863-1864  - on the Church plans online site

The Incorporated Church Building Society site has details of plans submitted in respect of St Tyssil Church, Llandyssil. A grant for rebuild was approved in 1863/4 and rejected in 1866/7.

This church is not included in the CPAT's Montgomershire Churches Survey (which covered pre C19th churches only), I understand that the present church, built 'c 1865' is still in use, and that the earlier church only has a porch surviving and a graveyard
