Cwmyoy Church, Cwmyoy

  • slide

Cwmyoy Church was built on the site of an ancient land slip, which it was believed happened during Christ’s Crucifixion. In fact, Cwmyoy is built on the site of an landslip caused by a huge block of sandstone splitting after the Ice Age and slippiung down the mountain. The result is that the church was built on broken rock foundations which, over hundreds of years, have moved and twisted the building into its current amazing form.
