St. David's church, Langeview. Text and photos of the church, cemetery and individual grave stones. Click on image to see a sharper version of the original.


"The building is largely from the fifteenth century, from which time date most of the windows and the screen and rood loft inside ". The church is not in use and it is now under the care of the organisation Friends of Friendless Churches. http://friendsoffriendlesschurches.org.uk/llangeview/

"The first record of a church on the site is in 1254.[3] However the present church dates mainly from the 15th century and it was probably originally dedicated to Saint Cyfyw." "It is Grade I listed because of its "exceptional interior" including a 15th-century rood-loft and "rare pre-Victorian box pews and fittings".[1] The church stands in a churchyard that is almost circular, and is surrounded by a bank and the traces of a ditch."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_David%27s_Church,_Llangeview
