The church of St. Tysilio at Sellack is in the most glorious peaceful position, surrounded by fields.

The original building was 12th century, with additions and subtractions over the next two centuries. In 1840, the parishioners rather wrecked the church by removing most of the north aisle and making a mess of building the north transept!

However, the church was re-opened on 7th December 1841 and was declared to have been considerably enlarged with free sittings provided for the accommodation of the poor.  The sermon was preached by the Lord Bishop of Hereford.

Lately, there has been much restoration and repair work, including on the 15th century spire.
