Pilgrimage & Visiting
Opening and maintaining our Church buildings for Pilgrims and visitors is a key priority for our Parish. We therefore strive to keep all of our buildings open and available for everyone to come, see and pray.
St Tecwyn, Llandecwyn
St Tecwyn is located above the village of Llandecwyn with a single track road from Llandecwyn up to the Church for vehicle access. There is a small patch of flat field for parking and turning opposite the Church but the road beyond the Church is unsuitable for motorised vehicles. Access is more or less on the flat but paths are either rough stone or grassed. For more information click here.
St Michael, Llanfihangel-y-Traethau, Ynys
