churchof St. Thomas the Apostle[http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/69915] is notable for many unusual features. It is unusually large [http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/583085] for a parish church on the Caldicot and Wentloog Levels, perhaps second only in its grandeur to that at Peterstone. The church has a full-immersion baptisty, unique medievalstone carvings and a fine Victorian pipe organsalvaged from two previous churches. On the ancient south porch is a distinctive 'scratch post' or "Mass sundial" and (like the church at nearby Goldcliff) has a mark indicating the flood level of the water inundation caused by the Bristol Channel flood, 1607. The handsome fontoriginates from the 13th century and may have been an original feature. In the ancient peal of bells, the fourth and fifth are pre-reformation bells from the Bristolfoundry, dated circa 1380 [ [http://dove.cccbr.org.uk/detail.php?numPerPage=10&searchCountry=Wales&searchDiocese=Monmouth&searchAmount=%3D&searchMetric=cwt&Submit=++Go++&sortBy=Place&sortDir=Asc&page=4&DoveID=REDWICK Dove's Guide: Redwick] ] making them some of the oldest church bells working anywhere in the country. Most unusually, following their lowering in the tower in the 1990s, the bells are rung from the chancelin full view of the congregation, although a number of old unused rope bosses suggest that this must have also been the case at some time in the past. The fine East window, which contains some painted glass from about 1870, unlike the roof and the other windows, escaped the near-by German Luftwaffebomb blast of 1942. The restoration and re-modelling on the church, including the attractive raised tiled floor, in 1875, was by John Nortonwho later also participated in the building of the exquisite chapel at Tyntesfieldin Somerset.

Whithall Farm/Redbrick House
The earliest Church records show that there has been a house on the site since 1450, then called Whitehall Farm.
The main Georgian façade was built around 1795, by MP William Phillips. Phillips, built the Brick House ready for his son's return to Britain from the American Colonies. However the son (also named William) never returned, as the ship carrying him home was wrecked in a storm before reaching Britain and William was drowned [ [http://www.a1tourism.com/uk/brickh.html Brick House Country Guest House history] ] .
