Llantwit Major: Celtic crosses' new St Illtud's church home


Conservation work has been carried out on the stones before they are moved to their new home

Celtic crosses which are more than 1,000 years old are being moved into a new visitor centre in the Vale of Glamorgan.
The ancient stones will be housed in the refurbished 13th Century Galilee chapel at St Illtud's church in Llantwit Major.
It is part of a £750,000 project to tell the story of the church's role in developing Christianity across Wales.
The new visitor centre will open in June.
