St Michael and All Angels church, Cathedine, Brecknockshire, Wales. Text and photos of the church, cemetery and individual grave stones.

The church is not in use and it is in need of some repair of roof, gutterings and windows. The church yard is very overgrown in places, making it very difficult to see some of the grave. Most grave stones are visible and accessible.

The church is an anglican church. Built in 1868 by E.H. Martineau, nave with lancet windows by Stephen Williams in 1894. Closed in 2007-8.[1]

The church is recorded in the CPAT (Clwyd Powys Archealogical Trust) Historic Environment Records. "St Michael's church at Cathedine occupies a rectangular churchyard on a hill slope at the southern end of Llangorse Lake, some 11km to the east of Brecon. The church was almost entirely rebuilt in the second half of the 19thC, but some stonework from the earlier structure may survive. Its only medieval furnishing is a plain font. "[2]

Vicars of the church:

1768 - 1770 : Thomas Beynon
? ? ? ? - 1903 : Jonathan Marsden-Jones
1904 - 1912 : James Secundus Jones [3]

Thanks Steve, you're a star !

It's wonderful that we have people like you around. As you know I always get a headache of all this category thingy. Personally I would never find anything that way !

Sorry I failed to explain it properly.

Within the CIB is today's address. The address underneath the CIB is autogenerated and refers to where it would be found within Wikitree, and to where we should add profiles. Complicated, I know. S

today's address is Cathedine, Llangorse, Brecon, LD3 7UG, which is 3,5 hours drive from Hanmer, Wrexham County Borough, Wales  !

maybe the "system" got confused by my surname Hanmer and read that as location somehow ?!? In any case it is wrong and should be removed.

Please remove reference to Powys. We use the traditional counties. It should be linked to Category: Cathedine, Brecknockshire. I have added the Churchyard for Cathedine. Please use the format as shown in

Many thanks, Steve
