Church Service/Event, Sat 26 Aug 2017, free entry


The Parish Church of St. Llwchaiarn will be open to visitors on Saturday 26th August between 2.00pm and 4.00pm

St Llwchaiarn established his cell on the site of this church in the 7th century AD. The present Georgian brick building dates from 1815 and stands in a pretty setting among the new houses at Llanllwchaiarn. The church’s historic features include a medieval font, some important stained glass windows, and the magnificent rood screen carvings which came from St David’s, and before that St Mary’s Church, Newtown, and which have been installed in Llanllwchaiarn’s organ loft. Also on display this afternoon will be the historic Welsh Bible (1602) which is believe to belong to St Mary’s.

The church lies in Llanllwchaiarn about a mile along the road from Newtown to Aberbechan. It can also be reached via the Canal footpath.
