Probably the only church in Wales dedicated to this East Anglian royal saint, St Edmunds, Crickhowell was founded around 1300 by Lady Sybil Pauncefote (née Sybil de Turberville) who also rebuilt Crickhowell castle in stone.
Largely restored in the Victorian period, it still retains some medieval features.
The remains of an effigy of Sir Grimbald Pauncefote (died 1287) lies in a recess in the chancel of St Edmund’s church, Crickhowell.
