Inside

One or two other points of interest -  the organ is a superb example of its type, built in Bristol in 1840 and in full working order !

There is a picture and carving of Lleucu Llwyd, the Welsh Juliet, who is apparently buried under the altar. Her story is also in the Guide 

The picture on the back wall by Aneurin Jones of Ceredigion  places Owain Glyndŵr in front of the Victorian church surrounded by several local notables wearing 15th century dress. It is linked to the 1999 Welsh National Assembly whose First Secretary Alun Michael visited the church. More importantly to some thoughis that visit is marked by the plaque unveiled by the great Ray Gravell !

The plaques round the walls tell the stories of local families - all expected to serve the nation and the community; 

- of especial note is the Lascelles family of Penmaendyfi.  Arthur  won the MC and VC but was killed four days before the 1918 Armistice;

- many members of the Thruston family of Pennal Towers and Talgarth, especially Edmund  the only British officer on board HMSS Sidney sunk with all hands, and Arthur was murdered by mutineers in Uganda;

- and there are many plaques to the Anwyl family of Llugwy - one of the oldest families in Wales, the current senior member of which sits in the family pew  when he is here, and his family were generous benefactors of many of the special bits and pieces we have. 

In the Gallery is the Inter-Faith area where visitors of all faiths are welcomed,  and the painting of the Crucifixion by Karel Lek is seen.
