Eglywsfach – Eglwys Sant Mihangel/St. Michael’s Church
About this churchyard
Over the past 8 years the churchyard has been transformed with careful management to be a haven of wildflowers in the spring using careful cutting techniques to encourage diversity.
There are also ancient yews forming a splendid archway along the entrance path and a huge elm tree behind the Church which again with careful pruning is thriving.
The churchyard features St Non’s Well, one of many in Wales. Non is the mother of St David, patron saint of Wales. The well is said to possess healing properties.
There is an extensive survey of the gravestones in the churchyard including individual photographs and inscriptions featured on the church website http://www.eglwysfach.co.uk/guide.html. There is also an interesting Pirates grave and others dating back to 1499 .
