Llanthony Priory

Priory of Augustinian canons founded early in the 12th century in the beautiful and secluded Ewyas valley.

Hanes yr eglwys hon

Legend has it that St David himself stayed in this remote spot for a time while making his way through Wales. St David's church dates from the early 12th century, but is almost certainly built on the site of an earlier church.

It is said that the ruins of St David's church attracted William de Lacy here. One of the Norman Marcher Lords, he renounced the world, and with a handful of like minded men, established an abbey here in about 1100.

After the Dissolution it fell in to ruins, but parts have been restored and house a hotel and tea rooms.

The ruins are atmospheric, set off by the mountainous green landscape.

Sant Mair

Ailadeiladwyd St Mair yn 1875-6 gan y pensaer John Dando Sedding. Ailddefnyddiodd Sedding rywfaint o gerrig yr adeilad gwreiddiol yn ofalus a chelfydd, ac ychwanegodd furluniau sgraffito addurniadol a choeth.
