The Nave, St. Andrews Church, Presteigne.
In 1868 a restoration of the church undertaken by Sir George Gilbert Scott was carried out and he repaired the original roof and wooden belfry but removed the west gallery and added a new nave (shown here), chancel and sanctuary.

Tapestry, St. Andrews Church, Presteigne.
In 1737, St Andrew's Church was given a Flemish tapestry from 1510 detailing Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and is seen hanging on the north wall of the church. It is one of only two pre-English Reformation tapestries to be hung on display in parish churches in the United Kingdom.
