Ysbyty Ystwyth, Ceredigion

Ysbyty Ystwyth is a small village in Ceredigion, Wales 13 miles S.E.S. from Aberystwyth. Its church and the parish of the same name were the property of the Order of the Knights of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, hence the 'Ysbyty' in the title, which never was (despite local belief) a hospice for travellers to Strata Florida.
