|Description ||I had to look in Disserth Church, which sits squatly in a dip out of sight. Where are most churches situated? High, prominent, on ridges, or top of mounds, saying "we are here, what are you going to do about it?". This one not so, so it had to be investigated. Largely 17th century, the site dates from early mediaeval and is attributed to St Cewydd. A large churchyard, with towering yews (though not hugely old), and a simple stone and wood church fabric with items dating to 1666 and aroundabouts. Picked up a delightful little local history book, too, with great anecdotes and tales of folklore. Church at SO 03435 58371. Viewed on the SE of the churchyard, under a couple of the tall yews.|
