Gladestry is a small village attractively set in the countryside of the Radnorshire Hills. The Welsh name is Llanfair Lethonow, St Mary`s in the Glen. The Church is dedicated to St Mary the Virgin. Though it was restored in 1910, it retains some if its historic features, such as the Norman font bowl, the 13th century priest`s door in the south wall and the 16th century oak roof. The wrought iron weather vane on the tower is a flying serpent, dated 1709. In the farmyard beside the church there is a medieval tithe barn. The 16th century black and white building opposite the church is Corner House. In the eaves of the ornate house next door to the Post Office, notice a white hand and upturned heart.
