St Teilo's Church Cardiff

St Teilo's Church (see below) stood for 700 years by the River Llwchwr near Pontarddulais in Southern Wales where it was known as the "old church on the marsh". The decision to move the church to the Museum of Welsh Life (aka St Fagans National History Museum) was taken in 1973.

As the building was being taken down to be moved, 500-year-old paintings (see below) were discovered under layers of whitewash.

Those paintings have been lovingly recreated using medieval techniques for today's visitor to enjoy.

The Museum of Welsh Life (St Fagans National History Museum) is situated 4 miles west of Cardiff City Centre, just off the A4232. Visitors to the Museum of Welsh Life may also want to visit the Oakdale Workmen's Institute or the Gwalia Stores also located within the museum.
