Moravian Church, Brockweir, Gloucestershire

From St Briavels I dropped down into the Wye Valley and the tiny picturesque settlement of Brockweir. Visible clearly from the welsh side and accessed from there by an iron bridge of 1905, the chapel was built 1832-3 by the Bristol Moravian Congregation. It has a detached Victorian brick schoolroom at the rear. Simplicity itself, yet peaceful and open. Organ on west gallery over the entrance. Here a flask of iced water and a selection of squashes invited the visitor to partake of refreshments. I did, and made a freewill donation to the church.
