Llancarfan and St Cadoc

And you thought that shaving half someone's hair off was the sole perogative of men behaving badly, yobs on a drunken spree, or pre-wedding stag parties? Well, here's the story of a Celtic saint who did it too!

Actually, I was surprised to find Llancarfan. I had looked for it on the map and failed to find it, but as I drove down to Llanilltud Fawr I happened to spot a sign pointing off to it - and after several miles of very narrow lanes I plunged through a ford and there it was. Well worth the visit, however.
