The first stone church on the Lendum site was presumably a Romanesque building built around 1200. In the end of the 16th century, it was so dilapidated that a complete reconstruction was needed. The church was restored as the current red brick building which is whitewashed except the eastern end and the southern wall. The pulpit is from 1640 and the altarpiece from 1722. The beautiful altar rails are made in wrought iron and the Roman baptismal font is in granite.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
