It was probably attached originally to the church at Llanafan Fawr ('Llanafan the Greater'), records of both churches during the 18th and 19th centuries show that curates from Llanafan Fawr also served Llanfechan. It was attached to the church at Llanganten by the early 20th century.
St Afan was a 5th or 6th century Welsh bishop, who was usually known as Afan Buallt, indicating a connection with the Buallt area. It is not known where or when he was a bishop, but the name by which he was referred suggests his diocese was around Builth in Brycheiniog with his seat at Llanafan Fawr."
This is the view of the church from over the wall.
Going through the gate leads you to see a closer view
Walking around to the West end and the single bell then towards the North side
Finally around to the East end then South side
Inside you find a single cell church with a step up leading to the altar
on which you find a single candle with a lot of bad droppings around it and try as I might I could not see any above me, mind you it was dark looking up.
Tuning around you get a good view of the choir stalls and nave
There is a single organ that looks well used
and a nice jug containing plastic flowers on it
Above the font with cover and the pulpit. you get a nice view of the altar from it
And another of the nave, before leaving we turn around and get a good view from the doorway
Outside wandering around you find a lot of old interesting headstones
Above a couple of fenced monuments one almost hidden under a yew.
Stone tombs seem to be more common in this churchyard
Some of the graves have both head & footstones
and some headstones look more recent than others
