Anglesey, Llangwyllog, St Cwyllog's Church and Tombstones

The Church of St Cwyllog in Llangwyllog is no longer in regular use, but occasional services are still held there. The church has never benefited from electric light and thus the reason for the unsightly hanging gas canister lights that do nothing for the aesthetics of this delightful old church, which may have been founded in the year 605ad.

Unusually, one of the rooms was used as a school room, and from within that room there appears to be what looks like a leper's 'window', through which a diminishing square hole looks directly and only at the pulpit.

The main benefactors of the church were the tenants off what today we know as Treysgawen Hall, but then was spelt Trescawen.
