Geocache Description:

This geocache is one of many in this Ministry Area, we hope to have one in each of our 11 churches. St Michael's Llanfihangel Rhos-y-Corn is a delightful old church in the Brechfa Forest, on an ancient pilgrims trail and is part of the Quiet Garens Trust. You will be looking for a cache with a view!


The oldest part of this church was built in the 13th century. The second nave was added c. 1500. The church is set high on the mountain and it lends itself to a quieter meditative style of worship.  

Llanfihangel CHurch

The church is surrounded by beautiful woodlands, farmland and valleys. Llanfihangel Church is developing its ministry to visitors and tourists through the labyrinth, refreshment table and prayer pebble pool. To this end we have displays of some of the things we do in the church and displays to aid prayer and meditation .Historically, Llanfihangel was a place of pilgrimage. Pilgrims climbed the steep 'Rhipyn seimon' hill and would kneel to pray on a large flat stone from which they could first see the church. The fields around became known as 'Cear Paderau Bach' the fields of little prayers.

You are very welcome to look inside this lovely church which is open during daylight hours, and don't forget to walk the prayer labyrinth to the rear of the churchyard whilst you are here. (Instructions on how to use the labyrinth are inside the church.)
