Beautiful peaceful spot. Well worth stopping off for on trip home from Abersoch. Churchyard looked great in sunshine. Interior is a little damp in spots. But some fascinating history. Favourite points were the dog tongs for removing unruly hounds. And the pews and carvings in the sanctuary. Amazing to think how long worship has taken place here.

Just off the A499 you find a grade 1 listed, picturesque church on the centre of a village. Inside the church is large and bright with whitewashed walls and huge windows - though no stained glass. There’s also an exhibition on the history of the place from the 8th/9th century to modern day.
Outside there are some ornate graves and an unusual sun dial.

Hubby and me visited this grand Grade 1 listed church on the Llyn Peninsula yesterday morning (Tuesday). It's easy to find - just follow the directions on the large brown sign on the A499 (mid-way between Caernarfon & Pwllheli). This small village has limited free roadside parking.

The current building is on the site of a former Celtic Monastery founded by St. Beuno in the 7th century. The oldest part of the existing church dates back to the 15th century. It was an important stopping place for pilgrims heading to Bardsey Island and is still is a major destination for modern pilgrims today.

The main entrance to the church/yard is off high street and through the lychgate. The entrance to the church is on the right-hand-side (just follow the path). The interior was spacious and sophisticated with white-washed walls and exposed timber roof. There were plenty of information boards on display and various monuments to local gentry. In a glass case we saw St. Bueno's Chest - a lockable ancient wooden chest hollowed out from a single piece of oak - used to secure financial donations from saints and sinners.

I liked the carved choir stalls in front of the altar which consisted of fold-up seats to perch on when they were standing for lengthy services. Hubby liked the octagonal wooden pulpit which had scrolled serpants all around the top panel. On the wall by the organ there was an interesting pair of extendable dog tongues made out of iron with sharp spikes on the ends - used to eject disruptive dogs! By the way, current rules state that no dogs are allowed in the cemetery or the chuch.

A walk around the graveyard was equally fascinating. We saw an unusual tide sundial (Grade 2 listed) located on the south west corner of the chapel annex. It dates between the 10th & 12th century. It is a free-standing 6 foot high slab of granite with a circular hole drilled through the top. This was used in Anglo-Saxon times to tell the time before clocks were invented.

On the north-east corner of the church (by the path leading to the entrance) we saw an elaborate Victorian monument - the grave of Ebenezer Thomas (1802-1883). He was better known by his bardic name of Eben Fardd. He wrote award-winning poems and hymns. He ran a school in the little chapel and lived opposite in the blue and white cottage called Bod Cybi.

Unfortunately, we couldn't find any access to the little chapel annex. We made a donation, signed the visitors book and then walked to the nearby Holy Well.

On our way from Caernarfon to Criccieth we saw this lovely looking church and decided to stop and have a look at it.

What a wonderful and historic Church with some very interesting features such as the Ancient Wooden Chest, Beuno's Stone, Freestanding Tide Dial and old Graveyard.

Well worth a Visit if in the Area!

I went to St Beuno's Church for a specific reason to see the older chapel but unfortunately it was locked so I went into the church and had a look around and found a little lacking in soul, an exhibition of the history was interesting and the architecture amazing especially the ends of the Miserchords [the seats within the screen] but even they have not been looked after I suppose the decline of the congregation doesn't help
On the South East Corner of the Chapel is an amazing Sundial nothing of type I have seen before, that made my day.

What an amazing church. My husband and myself loved it. The Architecture reminded us very much of The church at St. David's Pembrokeshire. So much history to learn. We loved the sun dial in the church yard, and the quirky 'instrument' on the wall in the church, which was used to remove unruly dogs. Well worth a visit. A fascinating church.

We visited this Church on the road between Caernarfon and Pwllhelli. The church was a pilgrim church for pilgrims on their way to Bardsey Island. It is a very impressive, large and ancient church, unlike most of the small, somewhat insignificant churches in this area. It was said to be founded by St.Beuno in 630 AD , but most of the building dates from the 15th and 16th century. There are very good historical information boards in the Church, and a helpful leaflet explaining what you can see. Don't miss the tongs for controlling unruly dogs, and the very poignant brass on the wall to a two year old child. There is also a marvellous old wooden chest, called St.Beuno's Chest, where the proceeds of animal sales were deposited. Lots of other interesting things too. Highly recommended.
