St Garmon
Llanarmon Yn Ial

St Garmon’s stands prominently in the centre of the vibrant village of Llanarmon Yn Ial.

St Garmon’s foundation dates to the 9th century. Its patron is St Garmon, or St Germanus of Auxerre, who visited Britain in 429AD. In the 15th century, a second nave was added to the original church and in 1773 the stone arches dividing the two naves were replaced with the present magnificent oak pillars. There are many treasures to be found in St Garmon’s church including a memorial to Gruffydd ap Llywelyn ap Ynyr 1320, and to Sir Evan Lloyd 1586, with rare Welsh inscriptions found in the south aisle.

Perhaps the greatest treasure in the church though is the serenity carved through centuries of prayer.
