St Andrew the Apostle

Thought to be an early 19th century rebuilding of a medieval church although no perceptible early fabric remains.

About this church

Indeed the church is valued for its survival as a modest but evocative late Georgian Anglican box with Gothic windows, and a completely intact, single chamber interior. The chief joy is the painted and panelled pulpit and reading desk, the former so tall it almost touches the ceiling with its sounding board.

There remains a complete set of box pews and an unusually elaborate memorial tablet against the east wall. This commemorates Morris Williams of Cwmgloyne, in the parish of Neverne, who died in 1840. The interior also houses a modest 12th century square font. Bayvil is listed Grade II*.

St Brynach

Nevern is on the little River Nyfer, which winds to the north of the Presceli Hills. These hills have been inhabited for thousands of years, as the prehistoric Pentre Ifan burial chamber, or dolmen, proves. St Brynach is only a mile or two south of Nevern and has spectacular views across the hills to Cardigan Bay.
