Looks like it might have been built by four sets of builders singing from different hymn sheets. Makes it oddly quaint and interesting. Originally built on the site of a roman fort in 560AD by St Cybi, reputed to be related to St David, who...More

We didn't have much time in Holyhead, but when we entered a gate and suddenly faced a most impressive old church, we decided to stay a while. St. Cybi's goes back a long way, to the early days of Christianity in Britain, and the present...More
