CPAT PHOTO 05-C-44 Church settlement of Llan-gors, viewed from the south. The present church dedicated to St Paulinus lies within a distinctive curvilinear churchyard near the centre of the settlement and probably represents an early medieval ecclesiastical site dating from at least the 7th century.

CPAT PHOTO 05-C-78 Partly flooded fieldscapes at the southern end of Llangorse Lake. Llangasty Tal-y-llyn church is visible on the edge of the lake to the right of centre and 19th-century Treberfydd country house and home farm towards the left background. Photo: CPAT 05-C-78.

CPAT PHOTO 05-C-62 Irregular fieldscapes near Neuadd Farm, Llangasty Tal-y-llyn, near the southern end of Llangorse Lake. Photo: CPAT 05-C-62.

CPAT PHOTO 05-C-93 Fieldscape just to the south of Llanfihangel Tal-y-llyn, near Lake View. Like the similar field pattern near the village of Llan-ddew, the strip fields combined with dog-legged boundaries and remnant traces of ridge and furrow cultivation have derived from the enclosed medieval open-fields associated with the medieval church settlement.
