The church of St. Cadoc at Llancarfan [CF623AD] is the focus of this small and charming village in the heart of Vale of Glamorgan. Our church is now open daily from 1000 to at least 1800. 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 closed (except for services) for further conservation and discovery until December 2014.
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.
