Cefnllys - usurped by Llandrindod Wells

Cefnllys Castle(s) flourished in the middle ages on top of a steep hill in a U bend of the River Ithon with the village on its western slope . The castles had become ruins by the C15th at which time the church and presumably part of the village were still thriving. Now only the church, mostly, an 1895 re-build, survives in an incredibly isolated location

NB to do justice it needs a whole day based at the carpark at Shaky Bridge.(No longer shaky!)
