Nearly 1,000 years old

Said to have been founded by Bishop Herwald of Llandaff in 1056, this lovely church hugs the side of a remote valley.

A Roman altar is built into a blocked doorway and thirteenth-century wallpaintings decorate the walls in the form of masonry lines, borders with chevron design and consecration crosses.

Superimposed on these on the north and south walls are black letter inscriptions from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
