Anglesey, the abandoned church of Gwredog - August 2008

The long abandoned Gwredog Church near the town of Llanerchymedd served mainly the families of the two farms - Gwredog Isaf (Lower) and Gwredog Uchaf (Higher). The only memorials and gravestones now remaining are to the Lewis families of these farms.

The local farmer thought that under the nearby man-made reservoir (Llyn Alaw) that a monastery had been submerged when the lake was made. My maps (pre lake) do not seem to bear this out, but there is normally an element of truth in most local stories.

If you have any pictures of any churches, cathedrals, abbeys, monasteries or other places of worship in the United Kingdom, then please scan them in at a high resolution, but at least 1280 pixels width, and email them to me here.

Not just a photo of the outside of your Church, but also of the people that use it, of the interior, and even of the graveyard and the more interesting graves.

In addition, if you want to tell us about your special Church, then we will display your story, so as every visitor may learn and appreciate what your Church is about.
