St Issui's church and holy well are one of the most isolated I've visited tucked away up steep and very narrow lanes, or accessed by foot across the mountains. St Issui lived here in Celtic times as a monk and hermit. His well still exists and seems well visited. The church itself is magical in the quiet presence of God. It's almost as though you step into another realm as you enter. It truly is a 'thin' place and one of the easiest places to pray and sense God close, with angelic activity. It's also a very beautiful church, not only in the interior but the setting looking out over fields of sheep to the mountains. It was far more well visited than I expected and people seem to be drawn to the peace and presence of God, even if they're not sure what it is that's drawing them. The prayers of St Issui are still bearing fruit over 1000 years later. I recommend a visit. I will be returning.
