Information

The anglican St Nidan’s Church on the outskirts of Brynsiencyn was built between 1839 and 1843 to supersede the old church about half a mile away in Llanidan. The church is dedicated to the 7th century Welsh saint who was associated with the monastery in Penmon. The original plans included a spire but this was never built and the design of the church, by architect John Welch, proved to be highly controversial at the time. The church belongs to The Church in Wales and is a Grade II listed building.

  1. …lovely, as always — the ‘Here Lieth’ brings something of a smile, having owned a sign business and seeing employees wishing they could get away with something similar (tho I suspect in this case it was a matter of accepted convention)
