St Cattwg Church, Llanspyddid

I think that it is symptomatic of our times that an ancient monument could be declared redundant. I think that it should be listed by CADW so that it cannot be destroyed. It may be possible for your historical society to do this. It should not be desecrated in any way because it is consecrated ground and has been for 1,500 years. The name Llanspyddid comes from Llan Yspyddid, (the cell or cella of Sant Yspyddid) and the church is dedicated to Sant Cadog. If the church cannot keep it open a secular and interdenominational effort can be made to keep it open as a cultural centre. The secular Government should inject enough funding to keep all endangered churches and chapel open and to prohibit them from being used as houses. This is desecration.
