St David’s is a Medieval Grade 1 listed church in Laleston, Bridgend, South Wales
The current church was built on land granted by William Earl of Gloucester in 1180. The church nave and chancel are believed to date to the late 13th and 14th centuries, and the south porch and tower to the later part of the medieval period.
During the 16th century, the church and the manor of Laleston belonged to Margam Abbey, and in 1522, the parishioners were given a lease on the tithe barn.
The church is built on a standard plan, with a west tower, nave, and lower chancel in the perpendicular Gothic style. The stained glass windows are probably from the later part of the 19th century. The interior is limewashed, with numerous wall engravings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Tuscan Foundry was pleased to have been chosen to supply the new cast iron rainwater system for St David’s Church, which included 125mm plain half-round cast iron gutter and 75mm cast iron downpipes.
