Information

The Anglican St Mary’s Church in Beddgelert stands on one of Wales’ oldest Christian sites. There was a monastic community there from the 6th century and an Augustinian priory was founded in the 13th century. The priory became a parish church in the 16th century after Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. The church was rebuilt in the 15th century and further repairs and alterations were carried out in the 19th and 20th centuries.

  1. Very nice work, as per. I like the fleur de lys ironwork shot…quite fluffy looking, a startling effect. The next to last shot makes me realise how much engineering went into some of the decorative ironwork..fascinating.
