There are 56  Ancient Churches on sacred land in the Vale of Glamorgan. They are often on 'Ley' lines and a journey between them can create great uplift in the Pilgrim. We are very fortunate to have such a high density in our area. They are a wonderful resource for the open-minded traveller!

These ancient sites are truly remarkable. Because they go so far back in time, they offer hope for the future. They expand our perspective.  They remind us of what it is to be human. How fragile and vulnerable we are but also how amazing, creative and full of hope we can be. Generation after generation have nurtured these places because they consider them an important resource for a beneficial life. Sometimes we overlook and take for granted what is right in front of us. If we can come to deeply appreciated these places and consider the ages of devotion and nurturing that has gone into them we can greater understand ourselves. Whether you are a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu or a non-believer, it does not matter. What is important is appreciation for that which is in front of us right now and the insights and wisdom it offers.

Art is deliverance, even in suffering. But to those outcasts who do not appreciate freedom of thought, art is a crime.

Greatness lies in conception, in the eye, the heart, and the hand of the artist, and not in the geometric dimensions of the work.

Blessed artist, even if your art is one of misfortune, pick up your load and move along on your pilgrimage, following any road.

Georges Rouault.
