This church is not far from where we live and once a year we hike up the lane, look around the church and carry on to Rowen. It's in a beautiful setting. Think they have a few services a year there in the Summer.

The place is steeped in the peace and calm of centuries of worship. A wonderful and fascinating place, one of the stops on the ancient Pilgrims Way (you can get your passport stamped here). Worth a visit, you can drive fairly close if the legs are not up to the steep climb needed to discover it on foot!

Whether you are a religious person or not, this is the most amazing church. Tucked away in a small hollow over 300 metres above sea level this is a place of inspiration and restoration. Drive up the narrow mountain road avoiding the stone walls, then park and take a five minute stroll to discover this incredible place. Soak up the... More

secluded small church at the end of a lovely walk and on the Pilgrims Way. No longer always open which is disappointing, but a lovely spot.

This church was the home of a hermit saint/preacher many hundreds of years ago. It's remote location allows it to retain a magical sense of its past, and as you step inside it is a wonderful, natural and healing space. It's a bit of a climb from Rowen, but well worth it, the views alone are stunning. If you continue... More

We were recommended to visit as part of our walk from near Rowen. A very steep climb to reach the church but it is worth it. Amazing to think that worshippers used to walk there for services on a regular basis. The Church is dedicated to St Celynnin who lived in the 6th century. The church dates from the 12th... More

We love walking over to this Church from Penmaenmawr. It is steeped in history and one can imagine people walking for miles to get there and stopping in the inn nearby which of course has been pulled down.The earth floor of the men's area and the priest peep holes add to the character as do the Commandments on the wall....

A must for any history walker. The seclusion is wonderful ... you don't need to head into the heart of Snowdonia, just explore the hidden hills and valleys...

This is a delightful little mediaeval church three miles south-west of Conwy, accessible only on foot or bicycle. It dates largely from the C15 and has a beaten earth floor in parts. There is a well in the churchyard which into recent years was used to bathe ill children (but I would not care to try it). Occasional services in... More
