Abbey Cwm Hir

Cwm hir was founded in the 12th century as a daughter house to Whitland but all that remains is the ruined 12th century nave.

Hanes yr eglwys hon

The initial moves towards its foundation were made by the local Welsh ruler, Maredudd ap Madoc ab Idnerth, in 1143, but he was killed in 1146 and the area was reconquered by the Normans. His son Cadwallon reclaimed the kingdom and refounded the abbey in 1176. It was here that the mangled remains of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, last Welsh prince of Wales, were buried in 1282.

Five of the nave bays have been preserved in the parish church at Llanidloes since 1540.

San Steffan

Er iddi gael ei llosgi yn ystod Gwrthryfel Glyndŵr yn 1401, mae gan Eglwys Sant Steffan hanes cystal ag unrhyw gastell, gyda chroglen ganoloesol brin ac organ a all fod yr hynaf yn y DU.
