Churches

St Melangell's Church sits in a place of great beauty deep in the Berwyn Mountains, peaceful and unspoilt. The church stands in a round churchyard, once a Bronze Age site, ringed by ancient yew trees estimated to be two thousand years old. Parts of the present building date from the 12th Century though the most recent, a rebuilding of the apse on its original foundations, was completed only in 1990. The impression is still that of a simple Norman church, well loved and beautified over the years.
The restored shrine of St Melangell is next to the church and is known as the oldest Romanesque shrine in Britain.
Just over 5km to the south east is Lake Vyrnwy, this lake has a lot of history beneath it, and the old village of Llanwyddyn was flooded so Liverpool could be supplied with fresh water. During the summer months when the water levels are low you can see the top of the parish church tower.
