The church of St. Cadocs at Llancarfan is the focus of this small and charming village in the heart of Vale of Glamorgan.

A monastery was here from at least 650 AD, founded by St. Cadoc or Cadog.  By the 9th century Llancarfan was a flourishing centre of learning, with the main monastic buildings just south of today's church, in Culvery Fields.

Recently a significant historical find has been discovered, conservators are working to uncover a series of wall paintings, believed to date from the 15th Century, that were found by architects working at the church.
