Llanfair Talhaiarn Conwy_County Wales
St Mary's Church Llanfair Talhaiarn, sometimes Llanfair Talhaearn, is in the Diocese of St Asaph, in the community of Llanfair Talhaiarn in the county of Conwy. The double-naved church sits above the small village of Llanfair Talhaiarn lying in the valley of the Elwy, about 5 miles to the south of Abergele. The present building is believed to date from about 1600, but was extensively repaired and restored in 1839 and 1876. There is probably some medieval fabric surviving, but all of the windows date from the 19th Century, though the south door could be one or two hundred years earlier. Inside only a disused font bowl and a few of the roof timbers date back to the medieval era, but there is a good range of 18th Century wall memorials and one unusual feature is a 19th Century tank built for adult baptism. The church has a porch set about half way along the south side, and a bellcote at the west end of the south nave. It is oriented slightly north of true east.
