History of Manordeifi
The font is 13th century, and the bell, which was recently restored, dates from the late 15th century. Manordeifi also boasts several fine monuments - including one to Charles Colby who had the unfortunate distinction of having been killed by a tiger in India in 1852.
When in use the church would often be cut off by the overflowing Teifi river, and a coracle has been kept in the west porch to assist stranded worshippers.
The Friends have recently completed a programme of repair to the fabric of the building, including the conservation of the rare surviving railings to monuments in the churchyard.
This description is taken from a full history of the church, by Nigel Yates, published in the Transactions of the Ancient Monuments Society, Vol. 47, 2003. Please contact the office to order a copy of the article.
