The year 2023 marks the 180th anniversary of St Michael’s Church in Llanfynydd. David Atherton has decided to write an A4 illustrated booklet to help with the celebrations.
David takes up the story: “The church in the 19th. century had a turbulent time having gone through major repairs in 1868, a serious fire in 1892, and a mystery. Whilst living in Buckley, and attending Emmanuel church, Bistre, the Reverend Canon Martin Batchelor asked if I would update the history of the church to celebrate the 175th anniversary in 2017. This has resulted in a 56-page book.”
If you would like to read more, it is available from Llanfynydd post office, priced £5. All proceeds go to St Michael’s church.
David hopes that you enjoy reading this short history.
