St David's Old Church


The present church has a recorded history spanning more than 1000 years. The site was reputed to have been chosen much earlier by St David himself for the promulgation of the Christian faith founded after the hugely significant synod at Llanddewibrefi in the year 519 A.D. St David's Church sits in idyllic isolation, positioned above the River Irfon some 1.5 miles from Llanwrtyd Wells - exuding peace and tranquillity. The church is on a popular tourist, walking, running and biking route, attracting visitors from all over the world.

Expert surveys have highlighted continuing water penetration problems to the church, causing deterioration of the fabric, particularly to the wooden floors. The presence of cement pointing to external walls has contributed to the problem. The repair project will help preserve this lovely church for many years. At the same time the profile of the church will be improved through the provision of new display boards, production of brochures and creation of a new church web site depicting the rich history of the church, the local area and its famous incumbents.
