Cemetery notes and/or description:
Little is known of the early history of Knighton church. It has the appearance of being a medieval foundation, and reportedly functioned as a chapel of ease to Stowe, a small English village about two miles to the east.

The medieval church, for which a Norman date has been offered on the basis of slim evidence, was replaced by a Georgian successor in 1752 dedicated to St Lawrence. A small chancel was added at the beginning of the 19thC, but both were demolished in the Victorian era.

The present four-bay aisled nave was constructed in early Decorated style by S Pountney-Smith of Shrewsbury in 1875-7 at a cost 4500. The Early English chancel was completed by J.L.Pearson in 1896-7, and in addition the upper parts of the east walls of the nave and aisles were rebuilt and a new chancel arch inserted. None of the medieval fittings were retained and the 14thC font was taken to Llanelwedd churchyard.
