A very nice church full of history. There a Bible had been transcribed completely in Welsh, a first of its kind I believe. The church grounds were kept nicely and the big trees were spectacular as well. In the graveyard we went to see the resting place of our old relative Richard Sebastian Bond and his son and wife. All very well kept and peaceful.

An old and beautiful church with equally old and beautiful churchyard around it. The door was locked but we got the key from a very polite and friendly woman at the Railway museum just across the road. The church is tiny but what's interesting, you can find pieces of medieval stained glass in the windows and a remarkable effigy of a medieval knight inside.

Visit was free but it was so cute I had to leave a donation in the donation box next to the door. Worth a quick walk through. Only takes 5-10 mins.
