The Wales Coastal Path turns left, so leave it here and turn right.
Cross the A496 and head up the hill, passing the street of houses, Cilfor, on the right. At the white house on the corner, Beudy Cil, turn left following the Taith Ardudwy Way, which is now followed for the remainder of the walk.
(There is an outstanding view over the Dwyryd Estuary, looking down to Portmeirion, Harlech Castle to the left, mountains and the Glaslyn Estuary to the right, Rhinog mountains to the South and Snowdonia to the North.) The church is now open again and is well worth a visit to enjoy the great quiet of the churchyard, ancient lychgate, and ancient spiritual atmosphere. Tecwyn seems to have founded the first mission church here in the sixth century AD. Tanwgs in the dunes at Llandanwg (now also a Small Pilgrim Place) about seven miles south, founded circa AD435, often open in the summer.
“There were prophets throughout our history as well,” the coach shared.
The ancient burial ground of Llandecwyn and its Victorian small Welsh church, which replaced a much older church in the 19th century, is on an ancient neolithic/bronze age way, now part of the newly signposted Ardudwy Way long distance path.
Revd Jim Cotter started the Small Pilgrim Places Network at this church with magnificent views of Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay.
(see walking instructions below) On foot: Walkers can follow Saint Tecwyns Way, a 7km pilgrimage route from Saint Tecwyns window at the church of Llanfihangel y Traethau in Ynys (also a SPP).
The route follows the Wales Coastal Path to the Pont Briwet road, with its rail and road crossing over the Dwyryd Estuary.
His work is also being carried out by multiple BGEA ministries.
