Eglwys St. Non, Llanerchaeron
Eglwys St. Non, Llanerchaeron
This now fairly isolated parish church was probably remodelled to a Nash design, and it shows. The church dates from at least 1284, in the reign of Edward I, when there was a large medieval village in the adjoining parkland which seems to have been deserted around 1500. The cost of the church's remodelling (forty pounds) was met by parishioners, underwritten by Major Lewis, owner of adjacent Llanerchaeron (or Llanayron as it was known locally) house. There is no documentation to prove the re-working was designed by John Nash but it was minuted at a public vestry meeting in 1796, within a year of the completion of Llanayron House. Nash is also known to have at least aided design of other peripheral buildings locally such as a minister's house and a coachman's house. The internal restoration of the church was paid for in 1878 by Mary Ashby Lewis, the daughter-in-law of William Lewis, who was widowed for 62 years and died in 1917 aged 104. When her husband John had been interred in the family vault on 13 July 1855, it was diaried by an Aberaeron chemist that "There were nine other coffins there; some had been there over 100 years". Since the 1920 disestablishment, the church belongs to the Church in Wales.
