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

"St Cadog's church is a small, simple structure on the southern edge of the Usk Valley some 3km west of Brecon. Medieval fabric survives, and together with remnants of the original fenestration, may date to the early 14thC. The church contains a medieval font and piscina as well as a fine range of 18thC memorials."http://www.cpat.demon.co.uk/projects/longer/churches/brecon/16891.htm

"to the south of the church is an upright stone with two carvings of two circled crosses, one with four small circles placed around it. An inscription noted by Lhwyd in 1698 is no longer visible; standing 90cm high; 7thC-9thC. It is said to mark the grave of Aulach, father of Brychan. Dawson claimed that it was originally double its present height but was cut down at the time of the 1880 restoration."http://www.llanspyddid.org.uk/church.html

The church is not in use and it is now in need of repair. The church yard is very over grown in places, making it very difficult to see some of the graves.

I have more photos, also including close-ups of grave stones. You are very welcome to contact me in a private message if there are anything you would like to see more photos of, or if you need larger photos in a higher resolution.
