Well worth a visit, the oldest part of the church is its tower which dates from the 13th century, whilst the main body of the church was built in the 15thC.

Dating from 1533, it is said to be the finest glass window in all of Wales. It depicts Christ’s many-branched family tree beginning with Jesse. The window was saved from destruction during the Civil War by being buried in a massive dug-out chest.

St. Dyfnog’s Holy Well, Llanrhaeadr-yng-N

St. Dyfnog’s Holy Well
Llanrhaeadr, roughly translated as Church Waterfall, has been a settlement since the 6th century. Built around a waterfall where the 6th century St.Dyfnog lived, doing penance by standing under the water in his hair shirt belted with an iron chain. His virtues supposedly gave the water healing powers, capable of curing many illnesses. In the 18th century, the ‘bath’ was paved with marble which can still be seen to this day. Why not make your way through the graveyard, down to the stream, and walk in the footsteps of the original settlers.
