Hi Heather,

This couldbe the Pen yr heol which is near Llanigon. There is a small
Chapel right up in the mountain which is still used and quite a large
graveyard. Unfortunately it is not easy to guide you there and if you got
to Llanigon and surrounding area it would be best to ask the way. We had
difficulty finding it when we went looking for it.

HOpe you find what you are looking for.

Best wishes

Suein Suffolk
