This ancient church is dedicated to the sixth century saint, St Tysilio.

Tradition says that there has been a place of worship on this site since then.

 The present church was built in the year 1180 and, at various times, has been repaired and renovated.

The font is said to date from the fourteenth century.

The oak panelling above the sanctuary also dates from the fourteenth century.

The glass in the narrow window dates from 1460, the lower figure is James the Greater.

A beautiful blessing in the information leaflet reads:

“May your visit to this ancient church, hallowed by the prayers of many centuries, remain in your memory.

Into the gracious mercy and protection of God we commit you and yours.

May the Lord bless you and keep you, and give you peace and happiness as you go on your way.”

  1. This is astonishing, my best friend Lynn’s relatives are buried in this church’s old graveyard.
    I intend to go there when I go to visit Wales, Lynn has spoken about her beloved church for years, it’s fantastic to see the photos of it.
    Thank you, Angel. ❤️
