Llangasty is associated with St Gastyn who mentored all of King Brychan's children. They then went on to evangelise across Wales, Cornwall and into France. It's a beautiful lake, nestled at the base of the Black Mountains in south Wales. In the middle of the lake is a crannog, a defensive man-made island used in ancient times as a homestead. This is the only one in Wales and England but others exist in the Celtic lands of Ireland and Scotland. However, for me, the appeal of the lake is on the side of the nature reserve where Gastyn lived and prayed. It still feels a thin place, a place to linger, to pray, to expect an encounter with the living God.
