Site notes: Llanfair Kilgeddin's church is found one and a half miles from the village in a remote location surrounded by farmland. The late medieval church is no longer considered safe to use as a place of worship, though it is still maintained.The age of the yews suggests a site of worship here long before the present church, whose origins are mid to late 14th century. It has been taken into the care of the Friends of Friendless Churches.
