Hi Wil,


I like your suggestion that we 'Get lost on Anglesey'.

I know quite a few places in Anglesey after my Summer visits over many years, but yes there are lots of places still to discover.

I feel quite surprised that I know a corner of Anglesey that you hadn't known 'til recently.

I am definitely an Angleseyophile and my Mum made sure of that when I was baptised Menai actually at Llanffinan Church., near Talwrn in the heart of Anglesey.

Mum lived in Dwyran as a young child, but was actually born very close to Llanfair yn y Cwmwd at Cefn Bod Engan. Sadly the house is falling down and surounded by brambles now.

From the gate there is a wonderful view across the fields and the Menai Straits to Snowdonia. My Taid (Grandad) and an uncle of mine, who died aged 13, are both buried at - what the family called - Llanfair Bach. That's what er called to Llanfair y Cwmwd.

I agree it is quite hidden as I was taken there by Mum a few times and had to think hard to remember where exactly this little church is.

I have had to search records doing my family history and understand that the church was rather delapidated about the 1840s onwards and very few events or services took place there until it was restored quite a time later.

People went instead to Llangeinwen Church nearby.

I shall keep an eye open for some more of your suggestions.

All the best,

Menai.
