Llangunllo St Cynllo


The Parish

The parish of Llangunllo lies in northeastern Radnorshire not too far from its border with neighbouring Shropshire. Llangunllo is located about 4 miles west of the market town of Knighton. Llangunllo is a small and compact village sitting astride the B4356 road which connects Presteigne with Llanbister. Llangunllo also has a station of the mid-Wales rail line from Craven Arms to Swansea. The B4356 and Llangunllo are on the southern banks of the River Lugg. Llangunllo sits on the hiking trail of Glyndwr's Way and earns some income from hiking nowadays. The area is hill country and would largely have been used for pastoral farming, cattle in the valley bottom and sheep on the higher ground. The Lugg drains the parish eastwards before joining the Wye east of Hereford and reaching the Severn Estuary through Chepstow. Llangunllo is sited at around 230 metres above the sea but local heights rise close by to over 400 metres. Llangunllo parish is extensive, as are most in Radnorshire, it covered just over 5,600 acres and would have supported a population of around 450 parishioners. Like most of Wales Llangunllo is not documented in Domesday Book as that did not cover this area.

The Church

St Cynllo's church sits just west of the B4356 road and is uphill behind the fringing properties. The church is not a mediaeval one having been totally rebuilt in 1878, with the tower and porch added some 20 years later. Pevsner mentions only that the western doorway and a single small lancet window are both reused from the mediaeval predecessor but otherwise the church is clearly of little architectural interest as the account is completed in just a handful or two of lines. Access is best achieved on foot from the B4356, a narrow steeply rising lane heading westwards leads to track which turns towards the churchyard. The site is relatively open and presents few issues for photography.
