Tra b’o clogwyn yn Eryri,
Tra b’o coed ar ben y Beili,
Tra bo dwfr yn afon Alyn,
Cadwaf galon bur i RYWUN.

While there are cliffs in Snowdonia,
While there are trees on Bailey Hill,
While there is water in the river Alun,
I’ll keep a pure heart for SOMEONE.

Extract from ‘Rhywun’ (Somebody) by John Blackwell, one of Wales' finest nature poets and former Rector of our church at Manordeifi (his final resting place, pictured).

(Poetry and loose translation taken from the Mold Civic Society website).

Llantrisant, the church of the three saints: Sts Ieuan, Afran and Sannan. The church dates to the 14th century, with the south chapel added in the 17th century. In 1899, a new church was built closer to the centre of the village and the old church became redundant. By 1937, it was in a severe state of disrepair. By 1970, it was a roofless ruin. In 1976, it was restored. In 1978, it was vested in our care. Now, it’s open daily for all to enjoy ... if you can find it!
