Llanilid St Illid & St Curig


The Parish

The parish of Llanilid lies in the Vale of Glamorgan about 4 miles east of the industrial town of Bridgend. The parish is just north of the M4 motorway which cuts across Glamorgan from west to east and south of the A473 which parallels it to the north. The parish is sited at around 50 metres above sea level in the valley of the Ewenni Fach in an area of mixed farmland. There is no village as such to Llanilid, there being merely a scatter of farms and cottages. The parish was small in extent, about 1,800 acres, and with a small population, about 150 parishioners. Llanilid, in common with virtually all of Wales, is not mentioned in Domesday Book.

The Church

The church of St Illid & St Curig lies just south of the lane which runs through the parish but set back up a narrow lane. The church was extensively renovated in the 1880s but still shows a few features which indicate an early origin. The arches of the tower and chancel in particular have pointed heads which indicates an early period. The rest appears to be largely 16th century with many Tudor features.
