This Study Day focuses on the exceptional medieval churches of St Cadoc, Llancarfan and St Illtud, Llantwit Major. Both sites were part of important monastic centres of learning in the early Middle Ages and today offer many significant features of interest, including medieval wall paintings and early medieval carved stone monuments. Our expert guides for the day will be Madeleine Gray, Professor Emerita of Ecclesiastical History at the University of South Wales and Philip Morris, former Archdeacon of Margam, who lives and ministers in Llantwit Major and is the author of a recent book about Llanilltud.

Taking a minibus from Cardiff Central station at 11am, we will travel first to Llancarfan, have lunch, and then head for Llantwit Major where we will spend the rest of the afternoon, returning to Cardiff Central station by 6pm.
