Partrishow, also known as Patricio or Patrishow, is a small village in the Black Mountains of South Wales, within the Brecon Beacons National Park.


It is located in the valley of the Grwyne Fawr, in the county of Powys (historically Brecknockshire) and close to its border with Monmouthshire.

History and amenities

The village is noted for its outstanding 11th-century church[1][2][3] with an intricately carved 16th century rood screen,[4] mediaeval mural paintings,[5] and one of the oldest fonts in Wales. The church was originally called Methur Issui, a corruption of Merthyr Ishaw. It is now known as St Patrico. It avoided Victorian restoration, and its conservation was undertaken by W. D. Caroe in 1908-9, with further work on the churchyard in 1919.[1]
