Wales' hidden rock chapel

Sunday 16 March 2014

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in Wales has many enviable qualities. It’s home to Britain’s smallest city, the bijou St Davids with its elegant cathedral, some of the most splendid – bluer water than the Caribbean when the sun shines – coastline in Britain, and lashings of warm Welsh hospitality. Hidden chapel on a cliff, Pembrokeshire, Wales It’s also rich in mystical history. Clamber down the rocky steps near the village of Bosherston and you’ll come across a tiny chapel built into the cliff face. Built in the 14th century to honour the hermit St Govan who lived alone here during the 6th century, it’s a wonderfully atmospheric place. Staring out across the Atlantic as gulls wheel overhead, it’s not hard to imagine spending a lifetime here in quiet contemplation.
