Fascinating building with some beautiful medieval wall paintings and plenty of information about them and the ongoing restoration of this lovely church. Pretty village, and a great pub too. What’s not to like?

A must visit so nice and calming. I love it here you can just take in the surrounding area and the church and reflect on things.

You need only have a passing interest in British history to have your breath taken away by this incredible place. Beautifully set in the village of Llancafarn in the Vale of Glamorgan, the discovery in 2007 of medieval, religious illustrations beneath centuries of lime wash and paint have made this quiet, little church a place of global, cultural and historical significance. Work continues on a seasonal basis in the hands of dedicated volunteers to reveal the amazing illustrations of St George and the Dragon, the Seven Deadly Sins, the Seven Virtues and goodness knows what else still hiding behind the lime wash. The English Reformation in the sixteenth century may have been an unprecedented act of cultural vandalism but it may also have inadvertently preserved this one window back half a millennium to an age of ecclesiastical art that has now been revealed to a very fortunate generation in the twenty-first century. If you think any of this sounds or looks interesting, you owe it to yourself and the conservators working in St Cadoc’s to make a modern pilgrimage to see this wonder of the medieval work and to slip some folding money into their fund-raising box.

All I can say, is that having visited many ancient churches, both in this country and others, I've never come across such excellent wall paintings as have been uncovered here. What a treasure.
