Llanthony AbbeyLlanthony Abbey

Among the Black Mountains on the Welsh/English border lies the almost secluded valley of Llanthony. The Priory dates from the twelfth century and was inhabited by an Augustinian community.

Capel Y Ffin

Close to Llanthony is the monastery built by Rev. Joseph Leycester Lyne, known as Father Ignatius, who attempted to start monastic life in the Church of England. Later it was the home of Eric Gill, famous sculptor and typographer. It is not possible to see the monastery but there is a charming church in the village which is well worth a look.
