Church (Anglican)
Medieval church rebuilt in 1847-8, although the tower is substantially medieval. The site may be early medieval, as the church is mentioned in twelfth century Llandaff Charters. A further restoration was undertaken by T. David of Laugharne. The church has been closed and was made redundant in 2009.

For further information and photographs of Crunwere church taken recently after closure see Church blog.
