The old parish church of St. David at Manordeifi

Manordeifi (Welsh: Maenordeifi) is a parish and community in the hundred of Kilgerran, in the northeast corner of Pembrokeshire, Wales. The population of the community (2001) was 478. Together with the community of Cilgerran, it makes up Cilgerran electoral ward.

In addition to scattered settlement, the parish contains the villages of Abercych and Newchapel (Welsh: Capelnewydd). There was an unusually large number of substantial mansions in the parish, perhaps because of the picturesque scenery and good angling in the area. These included Clynfyw, Ffynnonau, and Pentre.

The old parish church, situated in the edge of the River Teifi floodplain52°03′30″N 4°35′08″W / 52.05846°N 4.58557°W / 52.05846; -4.58557, was abandoned in favour of a new church built on the hill top in the nineteenth century. The old church (mainly 13th-14th century) preserves many old features[1]. A coracle hangs in the porch, providing a means of escape during floods.

The population of the parish was: 745 (1801): 956 (1851): 631 (1901): 602 (1951): 402 (1981). The percentage of Welsh speakers was: 87 (1891): 94 (1931): 74 (1971).
