St David’s Parish Church is located in the remote and beautiful Heyope Valley near the small market town of Knighton. It forms part of the ancient deanery of Maelienydd, in the diocese of Swansea and Brecon. It stands on raised ground; on the north side it overlooks the Ffrwdwen brook, a small stream which flows down to the river Teme. Between 1880 and 1882 the church was completely rebuilt to the design of the eminent Victorian ecclesiastical architect, J.L. Pearson, who designed pleasing church architectural features for this small country church. The even proportions and use of light create a serene atmosphere inside the church.
St David’s Heyope is located on the minor road off the B4355, Knighton to Newtown. Take the Knucklas turning and continuing under the viaduct towards Heyope. It is approximately 5 kilometres (3 miles) from Knighton. Grid Reference: (Map Explorer 201) SO 746239.
