Llanelwedd is a village in Powys, Mid Wales. The village sits on the banks of the River Wye, which travels from its source in the Plymlimon mountains down to the Severn estuary near Chepstow.
The village is located across the river from the town of Builth Wells and is most well known as the site of the Royal Welsh Showground, which hosts a number of attractions during the year as well as the Royal Welsh agricultural show. Indeed, it can be said that Llanelwedd is the mecca for the Welsh agricultural community.
St Matthew's church sits on the east side of the village. Believed to be medieval, the exact date of the original church is unknown, but the present building was erected in 1877. The church contains some old bench ends and the base of the font dates back to the 13th century, although most of the woodwork was carved by two local ladies!
