The church of St. Cadoc at Llancarfan [CF623AD] is the focus of this small and charming village in the heart of Vale of Glamorgan. The village sits 15 miles from Cardiff, ten minutes from the mighty Severn, and 7 miles from the fruitful market town of Cowbridge. With regret, the church is at present closed (except for services).
Like the church's bells, its pastoral call echoes well beyond the ears of regular worshippers, and villagers take a pride in their church's beauty and antiquity. Just as they defended their local hostelry - the Fox & Hounds - by a village 'buy out' when it was threatened, so villagers cherish the history & continuity of a church that continues to reveal cultural secrets, hidden for centuries.
