There’s parking for two or three cars at the gate leading to the church with an information board and old mounting block for horses; handy if you arrived by horse …

More prosaically, there are public toilets opposite the parking space.

The church itself, St Brynach’s, is well worth a visit. In the churchyard on the south side of the church is a Celtic cross that dates from the 10th century or early 11th century. Close by is the Vitalianus Stone, dating from around 500 AD, inscribed in both Latin (VITALIANI EMERTO) and in Ogham. The churchyard is also famous for its bleeding yews. There are more Ogham inscriptions on stones inside the church.

The route follows the stream past the church and then joins part of an old pilgrimage track to St Davids. There are crosses carved into rock beside the path and just past the crosses the path climbs over a boulder with foot shaped ‘steps’ worn into the rock by pilgrims. The sense of history is palpable.
