Church of the Holy Cross - Mwnt
The Church of the Holy Cross (Welsh: Eglwys y Grog) is an example of a medieval sailor's chapel of ease. The site is said to have been used since the Age of the Saints, but the present building is probably 14th century. It has an example of a 12th or 13th century font made of Preseli stone. It is basically a Pilgrimage Church, rather than one associated with a Parish as it was on the main route to Bardsey Island and St Davids - both prime destinations for penitents in the middle ages. (Three pilgrimages to Bardsey were considered equal of one to Rome).
Mwnt is a very small community in south Ceredigion, Wales, on the Irish Sea coast about 4.5 miles (7.2 km) north from Cardigan. It gets its name from the prominent steep conical hill (Foel y Mwnt), a landmark from much of Cardigan Bay, that rises above the beach.
There is a magnificent beach nearby making it a perfect location for a family away day.
