St Teilo

Llandeilo’r Fan

The Faith is believed to have been established on the site of the present St.Teilo’s church by Gwrmaeth, a disciple of St.Teilo ,around the year 540AD. The original name of the church was Llangwrmaeth, relating to the cell of Gwrmaeth.
The present church is of a simple single storey construction in stone with a rectangular nave and chancel combined, under a lovely hammer-beam roof. There is a small bell-tower at the West end.The original water stoop,which would have been regularly used by worshipers in pre-reformation days can still be seen on the internal wall to the right of the main door as you enter the building. There also remains part of the original rood screen and evidence of access to the original rood loft.This an be seen as a bricked up door visible in the external wall.
The present church appears to date from the 15th century and there is documentary evidence which shows the first incumbent to have been Sir Rhys ap Harry, who was vicar in 1573. The church was altered in 1875,but because it was a poor parish the church was not completely rebuilt.
The late 1950’s saw the introduction of electric lighting, when the supply came to the valley, and in the 1960’s electric heating replaced the two old coal-fired stoves. Redecoration and new lighting and heating were completed in 2009.
