Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd

Old and New Churches of St.Peter

The village of Llanbedr, by the A494, as it snakes down the Clwydian Hills, has a pretty little Victorian church, with stripey roof and walls and a spikey spire-turret. The church is a place to sit, ponder, gaze, and experience an atmosphere of friendliness, peace, and tranquillity. The only medieval feature is a fragment of the carved slab in the porch, with a curly-headed face in the corner. Part of a 14th-century gravestone, it was brought from the medieval church in the old village site along the slope to the north. Abandoned when the new church was built, the old church is now a ruin, distinctly visible from the B4529 to Llandyrnog and only accessible by a footpath.
