Summary Description

Tradition has it that this church was founded by St Patrick himself in the 4th Century AD. The church is situated on the cliffs looking north over the Irish Sea, below is a cave where St Patrick himself worshipped having been shipwrecked. In 2007 the Calon Lân cooking oil company established an olive grove in the area trusting that Global Warming would enable the olives to thrive. It is believed to be the most northerly olive grove in Europe. Reference Buildings of Wales –Gwynedd 2009 The Encyclopaedia of Wales Cadw Listing Notice.
