Llangernyw, Conwy County
Llangernyw is a village in Conwy County, North Wales. It sits in the beautiful Elwy Valley close to where the River Cledwen joins the River Elwy. The village is just a short drive from the North Wales coast at Abergele and some six miles from the market town of Llanrwst in the Conwy Valley.

Llangernyw boasts an antique shop, a Post Office, and two popular pubs in the village, the Bridge and the Old Stag, where you may partake of good ales and good food, and, for the history buffs, there is the Henry Jones Museum. The museum is more of a preserved cottage than a museum as it is the childhood home of Mr Henry Jones. But Llangernyw is most renowned for the 4000 year old yew tree in the grounds of St Digain's Church that sits in the centre of the village. It must be worth a visit to the Vale of the Elwy if for nothing more than to touch one of the oldest living things on the planet.
Close to the village are the remains of Hafudnos a gothic mansion ravaged by fire in 2004. As of 2008 there are plans afoot to rebuild the property.
Old Stag Hotel: The Old Stag Hotel in Llangernyw is a fascinating place to visit, whether you want a pint of beer, a meal in the restaurant, or just a cup of tea. All the walls are covered with antiques and bric a brac and you would be forgiven for thinking that you had entered the Antique shop across the road! I have not visited in the evening but the old place, 17th Century I believe, was humming with the sound of elderly ladies gossiping over their tea and cakes on the warm sunny day that I called by.
Ancient Yew Tree Llangernyw

St Digains Church: The village church is dedicated to and founded by the 5th century Saint Digain, though the church itself as seen today is not thought to be earlier than the 13th Century. It may have been extended in the late medieval period, acquiring its unusual and distinctive cruciform shape at that time.
One of the yew trees in the graveyard is claimed to be the oldest living tree in Wales. Being 4000 years old it is one of the oldest living things on the planet.
Also within the churchyard are two good pairs of standing stones which would have been erected long before the church was built. One pair are described as pillar stones, both with crude incised crosses, and some say these are of the 7th-9th Century. The other pair of stones are described as boulders of a much earlier pre Christian date. Which makes one wonder why Harry and Roger Lloyd, buried in 1665, chose there last resting place to be presided over by “pagan” monuments
