Llanstephan: St Stephen’s

ABOUT THIS CHURCHYARD

Located near the crest of the hill, with extensive views SE over the Wye Valley, this beautiful churchyard is quite a treasure. The ovoid churchyard is 0.5 hectares, well managed and has two notable and four veteran yews. The grassland is quite species rich and, along with the more common ox-eye daisies, buttercups and yarrow, it has some less common species such as pignut, crosswort and betony. The church appears to date from the 13th or 14th century, with a two-and-half stage tower.
