Caernarfonshire, Clynnog Fawr, St Beuno's Church and Graveyard

It is remarkable to find a Church of such quality in such a rural setting.

The oldest part of the exisitng Church - Capel Beuno Chapel - stands on an ancient site where there has been a religious building since the first half of the 7th century - reputedly built by Saint Beuno.

Found nearby - and now kept in Capel Beuno - is a 7th to 9th century stone with a cross carved on it. This was either a parish boundary marker, or more likely a prayer stone. Prayer stones were set at the roadside and passers by would recite a roasry before carrying on their journey.
