St John the Baptist, Ysbyty Cynfyn
St John the Baptist, Ysbyty Cynfyn
This 19th century church replaced an earlier one associated with the Knights Hospitallers of St John of Jerusalem. According to one account, the old church had been used as a venue for traditional sports such as wrestling but the Methodist revival of the 18th century helped to put an end to such activities. It is recorded that the first Methodist to preach in the area did so from the churchyard wall in the 1740s.
The church's other main claim to fame is the grave of the first recorded quadruplets born in Wales - see SN7579 : Family tragedy recorded in stone for more details.
