A HERITAGE project to restore the grounds of a 14th century church is seeking photographs of its famous plunge pool.

The woodland yards belonging to St Dyfnog’s Church in Llanrhaeadr are set to receive a major restoration after volunteers of the Cymdeithas Cadwraeth Llanrhaeadr YC Preservation Society (CCLYP) were awarded £300,000 from the Heritage Lottery to carry out the work.

The plunge pool, St Dyfnog’s Well, dates back to the 6th century when pilgrims believed it had healing powers. The pool is the centrepiece of the volunteer project, which will also restore a second well, two 16th century bridges and build a woodland classroom for primary school visits.

Alongside the restoration work, CCLYPS will carry out archaeological research with a professional ecologist to better understand the site and its history.

CCLYPS is inviting anyone who has photos of the pool to share them ahead of the restoration.

The photo share takes place at the Chapel Vestry, Llanrhaeadr from 10am-1pm on Saturday, May 18.
