Llangelynin Church and The Holy Well of St. Celynin
Llangelynin church is one of the oldest and remotest churches in Wales; it dates from the 12th Century. Saint Celynin might have erected a religious edifice on the site in the 6th Century since St. Celynin’s well is in the corner of the church yard. The well is a small rectangular pool with stone seats and stone walls. It was reputedly famous for its ability to cure sick children. Close to the church is an Iron Age fort (Cerrig-y-ddinas), an ancient hut circle and several standing stones. The area also has many roads that predate the Roman occupation.
