Now a quiet and picturesque village, Nevern was an important administrative centre in medieval times.

It has a wealth of historic monuments, including the remains of a motte and bailey castle above the village and an ancient bridge.

The church with its massive tower dates from the twelfth century. In the churchyard is a ‘bleeding yew’ which drips blood-red sap; legend has it that the tree will continue to bleed until the Welsh are once more in command of the nearby castle. A fine 11th century wheel-headed cross, four metres high and richly carved, also stands in the churchyard.
