Rudry St James

 

The Parish

The parish of Rudry lies in eastern Glamorgan, indeed it forms part of the boundary with neighbouring Monmouthshire. Rudry lies roughly 4 miles east of the ancient town of Caerphilly it is set away from major roads in lanes south of the A468 which links Caerphilly with Newport in Monmouthshire. Rudry sits in a commanding position on the first range of hills north of the Glamorgan coastal plains, the village occupying a pass through a ridge (Cefn Onn) at about 120 metres above sea level but with ground rising to over 200 metres to the west. Land falls away to both south and also to the east into the valley of the Rhymney. Like most Welsh parishes the area covered was quite large with over 2,000 acres in the parish but supported relatively few, just over 300 parishioners. The land use is predominantly a mixture of pasture and forestry. Like most of Wales Domesday Book does not cover this area.


The Church

St Peter's church lies west of the main settlement of the village, along a lane that runs below the bluff of Cefn Onn. The church shows signs of an early 14th Century build but much has been masked by later restorations and improvements. The Victorians had an extensive makeover in the 1880s and further work was done in the 1960s which Pevsner describes as "unsympathetic". The church sits on the south side of the narrow lane enclosed by a low wall, the grounds are well-wooded making for a difficult photo site with angles blocked by trees.
