How to get there
Heading down the pass on the A487 ... The lake can be seen ahead of you as you descend...turn at the Mynffordd on to the B4405 toward Talyllyn and Tywyn ...keep the lake on your right and follow it 's length west .. Pass the TynyCornel... and St Mary's is just around the corner... You can turn in just before and park around the back of the old Church.
