The church and churchyard at Llangelynin


Inside the church at Llangelynin

This simple little medieval church is a poignant reminder of the spiritual traditions of the Welsh hills. Above the font is a little wall painting of a rather surprised skull and crossbones, under a pretty border of scrolls and leaves.

In the corner of the churchyard is St Celynin's Well, which was believed to have the power to heal sick children. Near the churchyard gate, you can see the footings of the old inn where travellers across the mountains could stay. Nearby are the foundations of a little round house. Was this where the sixth-century St Celynin himself lived?
