Two-headed dragon on a beam at Llanelidan

Llanelidan

Village church with stained glass and wood carving.

Llanelidan village

The church at Llanelidan has a patchwork of medieval stained glass and wonderful wood carvings of dragons and horse-like animals with human feet. In the churchyard is a moving memorial to a loyal family servant of the local Naylor-Leyland family.

Here the village pub, the Leyland Arms, has a restaurant and offers bed & breakfast. It is usually only open for weekends and some evenings - but if you are there at the weekend it is worth a visit. Parts of the building were redesigned by the famous architect Clough Williams Ellis, the builder of Portmeirion. More information on the hotel web site at http://www.leylandarms.co.uk/ .
