Galilee Chapel St Illtuds
Llantwit Major

As part of the grade 1 listed St Illtud’s Church located in the Vale of Glamorgan, the Galilee Chapel is one of the most significant sites in Celtic Christianity and is of exceptional national interest.

 

DSA have developed a collaborative and community led project to house and give access to a remarkable collection of Early Christian stones. The scheme also provides disabled access and additional, more flexible space inside the Church for educational purposes within the locality as a whole.

 

The massing of the restored building will be of a similar size and form to the original Galilee Chapel, with innovative materials and detailing ensuring it is clearly distinguishable from the original Church. This approach will provide a C21st phase of construction to complement and enhance the previous historical phases.
