Exploring the Churchyards

The churchyards of the Meini Bywiol Living Stones Trail offer the visitor a tranquil place to sit and picnic whilst observing the plant and wildlife around them, as well as being part of the story of their communities. Some are ancient, and are a rich source of archaeological evidence of the early settlement. Others contain the remains of people who played a special part in local or national history, such as Ann Griffiths, buried in at the church of St Michael's, Llanfihangel. Many have interesting architectural features such as sundials and lychgates. It is often the churchyards that record the lives and occupations of the ordinary people.

The churchyard of St Wddyn is unique as its occupants were moved to their final resting place a second time when the church in the valley was flooded.
