Well blessed: parishioners celebrate St Llawddog
St Llawddog founded a monastic settlement in Cenarth some 1500 years ago. The spring that Llawddog’s community probably used for their water emerges under this modern canopy. An authenticated 1500-year-old yew in the churchyard is said to have grown from the saint’s staff. The church council are keen to promote the saint’s day (11th August) and encourage tourists to join in future events and celebrations.
