Firstly my wife and myself are not religious so this review is written from a non spiritual angle. We discovered the beautiful village of Ilston some years ago on a circular walk from the coast. This has now become now of our favourite walks in Wales taking in Ilston Cwm, Three Cliffs Bay and the Bishopston Valley. This Church and the surrounding area are a delight. So peaceful and tranquil one could sit and contemplate hours at a time. Not only is this a fine example of a Norman Church but for anyone interested in Welsh History and especially the rise of the Welsh Baptist movement then this has got to be a must visit place. A delight even for non believers.…

We visited this church many years ago and took communion at one of the service. Unfortunately on this visit (not to a service) it was closed, probably due to the time of day we visited.

Easy walk from Oxwich bay and in a very secluded location. Interesting churchyard full of wildlife interest. We could not go in on this occasion.

Firstly, start your walk from the Gower Inn, park there (you can pay & display) and walk up Ilston Cwm (Valley) - its a mile or so along a picturesque wooded river valley passing an old Wesley Chapel on the way. Depending on the time of year, you'll see unusual behaviour from the lively stream - in some places it disappears underground, and then reappears in full flow again. The church itself lies at the head of the valley, and is a fine example of the squat solid churches typical of the Norman period in this region. (See also Rhosilli and Penard too). I won't spoil the delights - go and visit - make sure to walk around the outside and look for the alterations. Enjoy!…

If you are in the area of Ozwich Bay, it is a quick walk up the hill to view this 12th century church and graveyard. It is a very small, very quaint example of it's time period and well worth the short walk up to view.
