St Illtyd’s Church, Llanrhidian

THE church was reputed to have been founded by the Celtic Saint Rhidian during the sixth century. Although dedicated to St Illtyd, the church is still strongly linked to St Rhidian. The current building dates from around 1300, though it was extensively renovated in 1858.

It is strongly linked with the military order of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, the Hospitallers.
