St Illtud's Monastery at Llantwit Major in Wales was a major monastic centre during the Celtic Christian era. The current medieval church stands on the same site and houses some beautiful high crosses. It also retains the amazing presence of a 'thin' place and the church is permeated with the worship and prayer of centuries. Many monks were trained here and travelled across Wales, Ireland, Cornwall and France from this place, sharing the gospel of Jesus, healing the sick, overcoming evil and performing miracles. Illtud, Dubicius and Samson are all associated with this place.
