In St Cynllo's Church
Inside the west end of SO2171 : St Cynllo's Church, Llangunllo / Eglwys Sant Cynllo yn Llangynllo are the four-centred doorway and three memorials transferred from the old building when John Middleton rebuilt the church on the old foundations in 1878. Above the door, the inscription with an open pediment is to the two Meyrick brothers, James and Thomas:

"NEAR this place lies Interred James the Son of
James Meyrick, of Peny Clawdd in this Pariſh, Gent:n By
Ann his Wife. who Dyed the 8th: December 1739
Aged Seven Weeks

ALSO Thomas the Son of James & Ann Meyriock,
who was Eminent for his Virtue & Piety and has this
Juſtice done to his memory: He Departed this Life
the 24th March 1766. Aged 24 Years.
Mors Iter ad Vitam."

Peny Clawdd (more properly Pen-y-Clawdd "the head of the dyke") is an isolated sub-medieval house on the slope of the hill of the same name, lying a mile or so south-west of the church at SO189706. The concluding Latin motto may be translated "Death is the route to life".

To the left is a memorial to Margaret and Richard Bryan, who died in 1858 and 1873 respectively - just before the rebuilding. On the right a tablet to Mary Evans who died in 1834 - from which hangs a colourful WI banner showing a fanciful representation of the patron Saint Cynllo, whose festival is celebrated here on 17th July.

The only other fragment surviving from the old fabric is one SO2171 : Tiny reused lancet.
