The village of Llanyghenedl on Anglesey is situated close to Bodedern on the old road from Llangefni to Holyhead, which would have went on through the nearby village of Valley, and then Four Mile Bridge to Holyhead, as the Stanley Embankment (the Cob) was yet to be built.

There is some doubt about the original name of the village - and therefore the church - which may have originally been named Llanenghenedl or Llanenghenel, but it is nowadays called Llanynghenedl.

There was originally a church here in the very early seventh century, which was dedicated to St Enghenedl (or Enghenel), who under Cadfan (Cadvan) was the British forces commander at the battle of Chester in the year 603.

Sadly, even the most recent church, that replaced previous churches on the same spot, has now been demolished. Parts of the building were used to build a part of the church at the nearby church of Llanfihangel-yn-Nhowyn church at RAF Valley.

On the latest occasion that I visited and photographed the Llan it was grossly overgrown. A sign of our times I am afraid.
