History

The Parish of Llangyfelach with St Teilo on the Clase

The Parish Church site can trace its Christian origins back to the 6th Century with Roman and possible Iron Age activity before that. St. David, the Patron Saint of Wales, founded a monastic community here and for centuries it was a place of pilgrimage. It’s grave yard is circular in shape pointing to its Celtic roots and is possibly one of the earliest Christian settlements in Wales. It has one of three detached bell towers in Wales (currently being restored and conserved) and the present Church is a converted Tithe barn.

St Teilo’s is a modern multipurpose church built on the old monastic lands (The Clas) now the Clase housing estate.
