GARTHBRENGY, or GALLT-BRENGY (GARTH-BRENGI), a parish, partly in the hundred of Merthyr-Cynog, and partly in that of Pencelly, union and county of Brecknock, South Wales, 2½ miles (N.) from Brecknock, on the road to Builth. It is situated on the banks of the river Honddû, in a retired part of the county, the scenery of which is pleasingly varied: the banks of the Honddû present many wooded knolls, which have a beautifully picturesque appearance. The church, dedicated to St. David, and situated on an eminence overlooked on the north by a mountain of loftier elevation, was rebuilt in 1834, with the exception of the tower at the west end, containing four bells, which was allowed to remain.[1]

Also known as Garthbrengi, Garthbrengy Church is in the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon, in the community of Honddu Isaf in the county of Powys. St David's church is located to the east of Afon Honddu, 5km to the north of Brecon. For more information see Garthbrengi, Breconshire at
