Notes: A bridleway leads from the bridge over the river Irfon to the site of the medieval church of St David in what was a circular churchyard. The map of 1833 shows the location of the two churches. This pair of yews, growing only a few feet apart, will mark this as a sacred site long after all traces of the former church have gone.
