St. David's Church at Llywel
St. David's Church stands in the extreme south-east of this grid-square at the foot of the military road leading onto the Epynt Ranges and can be seen from the A40. The current building is largely 15th Century, but contains earlier elements, including a pre-Norman font. According to legend, the church was founded in the sixth century by saint Llywel, a disciple of St. Teilo and was originally dedicated to Ss. David, Darn and Teilo. It is mentioned by Gerald of Wales for having been burnt down in the late twelfth century.
