Discovered this little gem on an afternoon stroll below the Menai Bridge, very unusual open church, or ore the size of a small chapel, but lovingly cared for and very peaceful, wet in a busy churchyard on a rock promontory in to the straights, well worth the stop for a short walk to experience the almost medieval atmosphere.

This is a perfect spot for a small wedding. The tranquility of the setting and history provide a meaningful backdrop for a memorable wedding service. We were fortunate to observe a marriage here and it was truly amazing.

We were advised that this would make an interesting visit, and so it proved. As the tide was out we got quite a seaweed smell which made it feel very much the seaside. The church is tiny, and we met a lady who was due to attend a wedding the at the weekend, could be standing room for many! The... More

My fiance and I spent a quiet Sunday morning on church island. We parked at the car park near the wait rose and followed the signs to the causeway that leads to the island. There's a small church and plenty of quiet. We saw very few people, lots of history and lots of wild rabbits. There are some great views... More
