Further Information

Saint Seiriol founded a monastic community at Penmon in the sixth century. The stone church was originally built in the 12th century. In the 13th century the priory re-organised under the Augustinian order and the refectory was built and additions to the church undertaken. The priory was dissolved in 1537 under Henry VIII but the church continued in use and was largely rebuilt in 1855.
