Llanfabon church

Llanfabon

Llanfabon Church, South Wales
A Victorian door in Romanesque style

The story goes that nearby Castell-y-Nos was cursed because stones were taken from the ruined 11th-century church to build the castle, with all work being destroyed overnight (presumably hence its name, the “Castle of the Night”).
The ruinous church was eventually rebuilt in the mid-19th century in similar style to the original.

  1. There’s also a local tale of a widow consulting a sage because her daughter had been spirited away by fairies, and more historic stories of victims of mining disasters being buried here.
