Visiting Gwydir Chapel

A scrapbook page to remember our visit to Gwydir Chapel, St Gwrst's and Llanrwst last week. Here's the history bit.... the chapel is attached to the ancient church of St Gwrst and was commissioned by Sir Richard Wynn in 1636. It famously contains the stone coffin of Llywelyn ab Iorwerth (Llywelyn the Great), Prince of Gwynedd and a great Welsh hero who died in 1240.

We also visited Seion Chapel where lots of my father's ancestors are buried. The gravestone I found with my Australian cousin Jeni two years ago had not returned to the ground as I feared and although broken in two pieces its still readable.

A walk along the riverside and over Pont Fawr bridge brought us to Ty Hwnt i'r Bont, another famous Llanrwst landmark. You can't visit Llanrwst without sampling the delicious fare found here - we've been visiting for many years and it never fails to please. Its now owned by The National Trust. We had a lovely day and took lots of photos destined for the family album.
