    St Non’s chapel is traditionally held to mark the place where St Non gave birth to St David. An early excavation found 'stone coffins' which might have been graves of the early Christian period with the pillar-stone dating back roughly to the 7th to 9th century. The water from St Non’s Well was thought to have healing properties. Whether or not you hold with this belief, being surrounded by landscape and seascape like this can only be good for body and mind.
