Information

Christ Church, Bethesda was built in 1855-56 by Edward Gordon Douglas-Pennant (1800-1886), owner of Penrhyn Quarry and who, in 1866, became the 1st Baron Penrhyn of Llandegai. This Anglican church was designed by London-based architect Thomas Henry Wyatt (1807-1880), second cousin once removed of Pennant’s Agent, James Wyatt. The church was restored in 1906 and received a Grade II listing in 1997.

This tablet was erected on the occasion of the
fiftieth anniversary of the consecration of this
church when it was restored in memory of the late
Colonel The Honble. Edward Gordon Douglas Pennant
(afterwards Lord Penrhyn) by whom it was originally
built and endowed. The expense of the restoration was
borne by members of the congregation and their friends.

  1. There is much spirit in those pictures. I’ve got some ideas for when the next time I’m in the cemetery, for I find that I rarely get to nice pictures. Though perhaps some cemeteries are sleeker and more atmospheric than others. I like your series.

  2. This is a cracker of a set! Your considerable feeling for the subject, the shapes of slate and the effects of moisture is even more appropriate in the setting of Bethesda.

    I do really appreciate the shots with grass in the foreground, they make me think of the relentless progress of life even in a dead place. Bethesda is a place I always drive through without stopping yet it has some fascinating architecture…must pause next time!

  3. What beautiful shots! I visited an old California mission just recently and never took one detail. All long shots of the steeple, the church, the cemetery. How stupid of me! Especially after seeing what you captured here. Thank you for opening my eyes.
